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.
 
At a typical League meeting, you'll hear lots of interesting news, 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! In 2016, for instance, the LWV was one of the leaders in the fight to keep solar energy development affordable and accessible to Florida residents. Partnering with Florida's Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence is another example. There are dozens of important issues where the LWV has a real and lasting impact.
 
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!
