On February 14, the Dare County League of Women Voters will be out and about actively celebrating the 100th birthday of the League of Women Voters-US.

The national organization was founded the same year the 19th Amendment gave women the right to vote. The Dare League, which was established in 1987, is making February 14 a Day of Action by having members posted at various venues around the county to give out information on the upcoming general election primary to be held on March 3.

They will have information on and forms for voter registration, the latest information on voter ID requirements and sample ballots. They will also have information on the VOTE411.org website where voters can go to find out who is on the ballot and what their positions are on major issues.
