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.
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.
