The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. League membership is open to women and men.
The fall lineup for the 2015-2016 League year starts this month with a voter registration drive at the Aurora Global Fest on August 22, followed by a variety of interesting programs and discussion topics scheduled during September through December, 2015.
We urge you to visit our site often as we're also scheduling candidate forums for local school board and City Council candidates, formatting an explanation of the 2015 state-wide ballot issue on marijuana revenues and updating voting and candidate information on our Election Central 2015 section.
If you're not already a member of League of Women Voters of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties, we invite you to join us. The membership form is here.
It's interesting, informative and fun! For more information, contact us at 303-730-2356 or email.
