With the U.S. Presidential Election coming up in under a month, it’s only fitting that the League of Women Voters of Jefferson Parish collection is currently being processed in the Special Collections & Archives at Loyola University New Orleans.
The collection features national and local pamphlets and publications, information on causes important to the League of Women Voters (nationally and locally), and much more.
One of the pamphlets from the Jefferson Parish branch of the Leave of Women Voters, “Who’s Who in Government”, lists members of the National Government, State Government, and Local Government, along with ways to contact each member. This photo is from the Summer 1997 mailing.
The League of Women Voters provided a pamphlet for teachers and students on how to actively watch and what to take note of in a Presidential Debate. With the third, and final, debate coming up next Wednesday, October 19th, this pamphlet might be helpful in understanding the importance and purpose of the debate.
