The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages the informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. Membership in the League is open to men and women of all ages.  Founded in 1920, it is one of America's most trusted grassroots organizations.  The Vermont League's annual meeting took place this month. Catherine Rader of East Montpelier was unanimously elected President. In her acceptance speech, Rader thanked members for entrusting his/her with the state leadership of this almost 90-year old organization.  "I am excited and delighted to lead the League of Women Voters of Vermont," Rader said.  "In the past biennium, we have worked hard for changes in state election law, in particular advocating for Instant Runoff Voting and Election Day Voter Registration, and our grassroots leadership will continue to ensure that our communities are fair, vibrant and strong in these especially challenging times," Rader vowed .  "We are the organization where hands-on work to safeguard democracy leads to civic improvement." Delegates set the League's program agenda for the next two years, voting to study the transportation needs in our rural state and to focus on election law, renewable energy and health care in the state legislature.
