We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge, and the confidence to participate.


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. -

Confronting Racism: an Ongoing LWVTC Charge


    Do not accept what is; confront it and move toward what should be. 



The LWVUS priority statement related to Immigration is:

Immigration policies should promote reunification of immediate families; market economic, business and employment needs; and be responsive to those facing political persecution or humanitarian crises. 


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

The LWVTC Board was "in retreat" on July 16, 2018, and came up with some exciting plans for the coming year.  The Board plans to offer some new type activities/events, some for League members and several for county/community residents as well.  A notable addition will be  "conversation cafe" events held at various places in the county. We will reach out to residents who may be less familiar with the League.  Some of the larger community meetings at Olympia Center will continue. 

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.

Monday, October 29 – Deadline for in-person new Washington State voter registration. Must go to Elections Office.
