The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization dedicated to public service in the field of government. It is a national organization -- open to both men and women -- whose purpose is to encourage political responsibility through informed and active participation in government. The League influences public policy through education and advocacy. The League never supports or opposes political parties or candidates for elective offices.
TWO IMPORTANT EVENTS COMING UP!
Help us celebrate the League of Women Voters' 97th birthday at our luncheon on Wednesday February 15th. See "Upcoming Events" to find out more and to sign up ($22 per person and RSVP required).
Come learn how it may be possible to ensure that the next President is elected by popular vote. Constantine Querard will explain the proposed "National Popular Vote Compact" at our Voter Education Meeting, Mon. Feb 20, 12:30pm in Sedona.
Our local league was formed in Sedona in 1988, expanded to include the Village of Oak Creek in 1990, and later expanded its scope and became the League of Women Voters of Sedona-Verde Valley in 1999. Just this year, we again changed our name -- to the League of Women Voters Greater Verde Valley. This name better reflects our regional focus throughout the Verde Valley.
We engage in voter service, citizen education, and political action on selected issues. We encourage the public to go to the polls with the best information available. We present forums where candidates can answer voters' questions directly and state their positions. We also present issue forums so that the public will have the information they need to decide how to vote.
