Curious about the League of Women Voters?

The Jefferson County Unit-At-Large focuses on Voter Education. Membership is open to anyone over the age of 16 who is willing to abide by our policies, as set forth by the League of Women Voters of the United States.

1. Political Policy

The League shall not support or oppose any political party or any candidate. You can still be active with any political party you choose, but while you are conducting League business, you leave your personal politics at the door. 

2. Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Policy.  

LWV is an organization fully committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in principle and in practice. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to the organization’s current and future success in engaging all individuals, households, communities, and policy makers in creating a more perfect democracy.

Every Vote Deserves to be Counted

The Jefferson County League of Women Voters encourages everyone to practice patience as we await the lengthy vote-counting process and await the arrival of overseas and military mail-in ballots.

We as a nation face multiple hurdles as we move into winter with covid-19 still infecting thousands each day across every state. 

As we transition from election to governing, we encourage everyone to focus on those issues they feel strongly about and begin to formulate lobby plans. Democracy works best when we work together as a community.

The League of Women Voters has prepared videos reminding us to wait for the votes to be counted. View the English language video by clicking here:

Esperando por la Democracia 

Broadway star Leslie Odom Jr  has done so also, using the song "Wait for It," from the smash musical Hamilton, which can be seen by clicking  here:

Wait for It

 And a hearty thanks to everyone who voted!
