While Marylanders stay physically distant to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the critical work and internal operations of the League of Women Voters of Maryland continue unabated. At a time of unprecedented challenges, the state League is eager to engage members in virtual collaboration and learning as we prepare for the year ahead.
LWVMD Virtual State Council 2020
