Recognizing our Volunteers

As a volunteer organization, we are very grateful for the thousands of hours more than 100 Portland League members contribute to promoting civic engagement in our county.


On June 6, we presented our 2016-17 Volunteer of the Year award to Art Wilson for his outstanding work managing the distribution of the printed editions of the LWVPDX nonpartisan Voters’ Guide for the 2016 Primary and General Elections and the May 2017 Special Election.
