Empower voters, defend democracy

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.

Before you can vote, you must be registered.  Go to this website to register: https://voter.votewa.gov/WhereToVote.aspx

The premier publication of many Local Leagues is "They Represent You." 

The TRY contains information about every elected official within a given county.  The League of Women Voters of Thurston County 2021 TRY is available at many public places around the county, such as libraries, county offices, and human services organizations.

    Are you interested in influencing the decisions that will shape the work of our League over the next year or so?   Here is the place for you.

    Annual Meeting via Zoom: The Thurston League holds its annual meeting the evening of May 25th.  This is our League’s major business meeting of the year during which we will conduct elections, consider proposed bylaw changes, approve Programs (local priorities) for League study and action, approve our operating and education fund budgets for 2021-2022, and conduct other business. 

    A 2021 Annual Meeting Booklet has been emailed to members.  This will enable them to be prepared to participate in the business meeting on May 25, as well as get a great overview of all that our League has accomplished this year.
