Our League will celebrate the return of our members and welcome prospective members at our annual kickoff picnic.

This is a great time to learn what our committees are planning for the fall, to re-connect with other League members and to introduce potential members to the League. You will also have an opportunity to sign up for committee(s).

Bring a friend, neighbor or colleague to the picnic and introduce them to the League!

We will provide sub sandwiches, drinks and tableware. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share.

We hope to see you there!

What you need to know about Cyber-Crime

CAT TV Program on Cybercrime


ShowIt2Vote is the website that contains information about the new rules on the ID’s to use when you vote, as of June 1, 2017.

Click on the link below to watch our LWV CAT-TV show for information about the new rules presented by Brandon Alexander, the co-director of Elections from the Secretary of State’s office.

“If you are registered to vote, you can vote”.

The most efficient way is to have a non-expired Missouri driver’s license (or Missouri non-driver’s ID), a non-expired U.S. Passport, or a military ID.
But you can still use other forms of ID as in the past (e.g., college ID).

Watch the video for details on this.
