DeKALB – Those interested in finding out more about the League of Women Voters of DeKalb County are invited to a meeting Wednesday.

The informational meeting will be at 7 p.m. at Colonial House Apartments, 1600 N. 14th St., DeKalb. An organizer will meet participants at the door to show them to the
complex’s meeting room. Membership forms will be available for those who want to join.

The meeting also will discuss recent concealed carry legislation, pensions in Illinois, campaign finance, fracking
and 100 years of voting for women in Illinois. During
the summer of 1913, Illinois Gov. Edward F. Dunne signed the Women’s Suffrage Bill, which granted women the right to vote in presidential and local elections. Full voting rights for women nationwide came with the 19th Amendment to the Constitution in 1920.
