Sacramento County

What are some of our activities?

The League of Women Voters of Sacramento County is an organization of both women and men that welcomes diversity and inclusion. 

      • We encourage informed and active participation in government.
      • We work to increase understanding of major public policy issues.
      • We influence public policy through education and advocacy.

Located in California's Capitol, LWV Sacramento is uniquely positioned to participate in the study of political issues at both the local and state level. 

  • The Sacramento League is recently featured as a case study in Vote for Us, by Joshua Douglas, Ph.D.  We are working with the League of United Latin American Citizens and Common Cause to get a Charter amendement for the City of Sacramento to have an independent redistricting commission and other reforms.  The Leagues in California worked to create independent redistriction for the State and now is a time to do the same for local governance areas. 
  • At the August 27, 2010 Sacramento City Council meeting, our League President Claudia Bonsignore shared our position on Homelessness regarding the locations of two shelters.

  • On July 15, 2019, our League 1st Vice President, Paula Lee, spoke to the County Registrar's managements staff regarding Ranked Choice Voting.  Like the California League of Women voters, the Registrar's Office supports SB 212 that would allow general law cities to use top two or Ranked Choice Voting, if it is voter approved. 

The League does not support or oppose candidates or political parties.
