Voter Registration Drives
In May, LWV-SC members led voter registration drives on high school and college campuses, including Edmonds Community College, and Lynnwood, Meadowdale, Mountlake Terrace, Edmonds Woodway, and Scriber Lake High Schools. At the high schools we worked with student leaders who designed the promotion and messaging to encourage their fellow students to register. We registered over 350 new voters! View photos...
Published annually by the League, "They Represent You" is a brochure listing your elected officials, with information on how to contact them. TRY brochures are available here, as well as at locations such as public libraries.
This is the core value of the League of Women Voters and its highest commitment. We strive to provide accurate and current information, resources, and programs for voters in Snohomish County.
The mission of the League of Women Voters is to encourage informed and active participation in government, increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influence public policy through education and advocacy.
