Centennial Wrap Up

In August 2020, the League encourages all people to be informed voters. Without endorsing candidates or political parties, the League studies issues, develops positions, and then works for policies that advance those positions.

In Thurston County, we are challenging everyone to be registered, well informed, and active voters.

The League sponsors candidate forums on You Tube to help you learn about who is running for office.

You can go to Vote 411, for good information about voting in your area, it’s a service of the League of Women Voters. 

 

In August 1920, the 19th Amendment was ratified, successfully ending a long campaign to allow women the right to vote.

For people of color, the fight for voting rights would continue for at least four more decades.

That same year, 100 years ago, the League of Women Voters was formed to help women carry out their new responsibility as voters.
