Promoting Democracy

The Thurston County LWV organizes and hosts events and activities to educate and inform voters regarding local, state and national subjects and issues.

LWV – Thurston County Presents:

The League provides information regarding issues through meetings and debates, and publications like They Represent You (TRY) brochure (PDF)

During an Action Workshop in Olympia, in November 2017, former State Senator Karen Fraser presented a very informative talk about "Water Rights and the 'Hirst Decision'".  She graciously is allowing us to provide you with her notes for that talk. Click to open the PDF of her notes.

Thurston County LWV also works to register voters at events and multiple locations year-round. The League updates and directs voters to VOTE 411, the voter information on-line resource which provides candidate and issue information prior to each election. The League also conducts candidate interviews on TCTV seen as the “Go-to” for elections information.


Recent Events

On March 24, the Olympia March for Our Lives  saw over 3,000 gather at the Capitol, progress to Sylvester Park, and end with activities in front of the steps of the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction building. Organized by students, this event drew people of all ages and stages.  Many were inspired to drop by the LWV-TC booth, to register to vote or pick up a copy of the 2018 TRY, aka They Represent You.
