The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active civic participation in government by (1) providing services to voters and (2) taking action on certain public policy issues. Positions on issues are taken only after study and subsequent consensus of the members.
THIS WEEK'S ANNOUNCEMENTS
- A short LWV Juneau Board meeting will take place on Saturday, January 16, at 9:30am in the KTOO Conference Room. This will be followed immediately at 10:00am with our annual Program Planning session to which all LWV members are invited. Please come!
- Please note the date for our Annual Meeting: Saturday, March 19, 10:00 am in the Assembly Chambers. All members are encouraged to attend this meeting to elect Board members, and adopt a Program, a Budget and Bylaw changes.
We hope our website will help you better understand the League and your government. We focus on selected policy issues and on encouraging effective government by and for the people. In an era of proliferating and powerful special interests, the League has earned a reputation as a respected and effective participant in the US political process at national, state, and local levels.
We hope you find the information on this website useful, and (if you are not already an LWV member) will consider joining our organization. Note that our members are automatically members of the League of Women Voters of Alaska, and of the League of Women Voters of the United States (LWVUS). Maintaining an effectively functioning democracy is hard work at all levels of government and we can always use more help.
