Making Democracy Work

Because democracy is not a spectator sport

The League of Women Voters of CT encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
Post Election Advocacy Issues Over the next few months LWVCT and Local Leagues will be focusing on issues raised during the Fall 2016 elections, including the status of the Voting Rights Act, eliminating the electoral college, the National Popular Vote, the Connecticut's Citizens' Election Program, and advocacy events.

We will be using this space to help keep members informed.
