Be a part of positive change

    

Since 1920, the League of Women Voters has been an activist, grassroots organization whose leaders believed that citizens should play a critical role in advocacy. It was then, and is now, a nonpartisan organization—neither supporting nor opposing candidates or political parties at any level of government—but always working on vital issues of concern to members and the public. In addition, the League works to increase voters’ access to the polls, including expanding early voting, automatic and online voter registration.

WORK OF THE LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS OF THURSTON COUNTY

The premier publication of many Local Leagues is the "They Represent You" flyer.  The TRY contains information about every elected official within a given county.  The League of Women Voters of Thurston County TRY is available at many public places around the county, such as libraries, county offices, human services organizations, and the Chamber of Commerce.

HOW WE WORK

League members work on a variety of issues over each program year. 

The LWVTC 2019-2020 Board will be "in retreat" this summer..  They will come up with some exciting plans for the coming year.  Check back this summer to see more about those plans and how you can become more involved. 

See the UPCOMING EVENTS page for details as time/place is confirmed for each. If you have an interest in being involved in and of the activities you see there, contact any Board member and let them know.  To find out about our current Board, check out the LEADERSHIP page.

League members continually stay active with advocacy and voter education undertakings.  Chief among them is helping people get registered and obtain information so they can vote. The VOTER INFO pages are a great help for anyone seeking information about candidates and voting. While opportunities to be involved in influencing and shaping policy are found on both our ISSUES and Advocacy pages.
