EMAIL ALERT!

Are you receiving your emails from LWV-VA? Verizon recently changed its customers from Verizon email to AOL email. This has created a situation in which many of the emails people have historically received without difficulty are now appearing in their AOL SPAM folder. Please be sure to check your SPAM folder if you are not receiving your LWV-VA emails. Be sure to add communications@lwv-va.org to your address book! (*This is also known to happen with many email systems whenever they update something. Make it a standard practice to check your SPAM folders often and to change your SPAM settings as needed.)
