The League is a nonpartisan organization working on critical issues including:
- Protecting Voters
- Educating and engaging voters
- Reforming money in politics
- Defending the environment
Growing out of its history to provide a place where new voters could meet (women who were getting the vote) the League of Women Voters is a non partisan oasis of data driven by research, thoughtful analysis and consensus building.
Locally you may know the League's work on the pamphlet of all the elected officials from King County. TRY They Represent You: A Directory of Elected Officials. This valuable guide lists all of the elected officials and how to contact them. Watch for the new pamphlet coming out soon with the 2016 elected officials.
The King County LWV has committees that meet monthly. The committees are: Climate Change, Economics and Taxation, Education, International Relations and Transportation. The committees meet monthly to talk to community leaders, stakeholder organizations and experts.
All around King County there are small monthly unit meetings, allowing time for people to discuss important issues. The unit meeting for the north end of the King County meets at Third Place Commons in the Stadler Room.
