League of Women Voters of Charlotte County Florida

WELCOME! WE'RE GLAD YOU CAME--AND HOPE YOU'LL STAY

 
                                   
 
Would you like to make a difference through increased voter engagement in our community?
 
The League of Women Voters is a national nonpartisan political group encouraging informed, active participation in government and elections. We study and report on major public policy issues. Membership is open to men and women of all ages.The Charlotte County (Florida) chapter is one of 800 affiliates of the national LWV.
 
Due to current corona virus limitations, we are currently meeting virtually.  With vaccinations becoming available, that should change soon. At a typical League meeting, or through email messages from our state and national League partners, you'll hear lots of interesting news about pending  legislation, redistricting due to the 2020 census, and cogent observations and reports on the vital work we're doing to help voters understand what's at stake in each upcoming election. We don't take positions on candidates, but you CAN help us decide on issues to advocate for or against.
 
And, your participation really makes a difference! Through regular "Capitol Reports." During the Florida Legislative session, we are alerted to actions needed on League legislative issues. "Action Alerts" to our members can help you focus energies on our legislative goals.
 
In addition to regular League meetings, we lead local activities that include speaker events, voter education and engagement strategies, tours of local institutions, lobbying activities, and social mixers to meet like-minded people who enjoy civic affairs.
 
SPECIAL OFFER! Are you a student? The League is now offering FREE memberships to all students who join through their local LWV chapters. We need your energy and fresh ideas - so please consider joining our cause!
