Making Democracy Work

Because democracy is not a spectator sport!

Join us as we make democracy work through education and advocacy.

Our Work Continues Today!

Take action with the League of Women Voters of Jefferson County as we strive to:
Ensure that government at every level works as effectively and fairly as possible. This involves continual attention to issues of transparency, a strong and diverse judiciary, appropriate government oversight, and funding.

Keep our government accountable for its budgeting and spending is necessary to a working democracy. Making sure we have funds to pay for programs and services that support citizens needs to be balanced with responsible spending.

Support legislation that seeks to protect our country from the physical, economic and public health effects of climate change while also providing pathways to economic prosperity.

Jefferson County - Where are We Now?

REDISCOVER JEFFERSON COUNTY WITH THE LEAGUE!
December marks the kick-off of our local demographics analysis. Why are we reviewing Jefferson County's demographics? We all intuitively know that this analysis is long overdue.

Fifty years ago Jefferson County was a farm community that was converting its cornfields to new houses. We are no longer that community. We know that the Jefferson County of today and tomorrow is not the Jefferson County of 50 years ago.

We are a well-developed county, but with what?
Going where?
What resources do we need to have going forward?

This exploration will begin to reveal our current county demographics
and how it impacts the resources under the topics of:
Aging,
Housing and
Education.

League of Women Voters Mission of the League of Women Voters

The League of Women Voters is a citizens' organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage all citizens in the decisions that impact their lives. We operate at national, state and local levels through more than 800 state and local Leagues, in all 50 states as well in DC, the Virgin Islands and Hong Kong.

Formed from the movement that secured the right to vote for women, the centerpiece of the League's efforts remain to expand participation and give a voice to all Americans. We do this at all three levels of government, engaging in both broad educational efforts as well as advocacy. Our issues are grounded in our respected history of making democracy work for all citizens.

The League is proud to be nonpartisan, 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. The League has a long, rich history, that continues with each passing year.

PLEASE NOTE: The League of Women Voters never supports or opposes candidates for office, or political parties, and any use of the League of Women Voters name in campaign advertising or literature has not been authorized by the League.
