When the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified in 1920, women were permitted to vote on national issues for the first time. The League of Women Voters was formed with the thought that women needed enlightenment and encouragement to vote. Immediately, the League became involved with a number of significant issues -- and not just "women's issues." In 1976, the League invited men into full membership.
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.
