League of Women Voters Hill Country in Gillespie County
Tired of partisanship that seems to cause stalemates, frustration with government, and divisions among neighbors? Are you weary of various news outlets and social media, wondering who you can trust? If so, you may wish to become active in League of Women Voters. The League believes in respect for individuals, the value of diversity, and the empowerment of the grassroots, both within the League and in communities. The goal of the League of Women Voters (LWV) is to empower citizens to shape better communities worldwide.
The League of Women Voters does not endorse candidates for any office. As a non-partisan organization the League acts after study and member agreement to achieve solutions in the public interest on key community issues at all government levels. The League works to builds citizen participation in the democratic process. LWV engages communities in promoting positive solutions to public policy issues through education and advocacy. The mission of LWV is accomplished through a variety of activities which include registering voters; providing voter guides for elections; holding voter forums; participating in study groups, and serving as observers to public governmental meetings such as school boards, County Commissioners Court, and city council.
