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, League of Women Voters of Sacramento County is uniquely positioned to participate in the study of political issues at both the local and state level.
- Act now!!! Urge Governor Newsome to sign SB 212 giving cities, counties, and school districts the option to use more democratic, majority-winner voting methods. Some cities already have the option to use runoff elections or ranked choice voting to ensure candidates are elected with majority support. But state law prevents other cities and school districts from using majority-winner voting systems. (more....)
- The Sacramento League is recently featured as a case study in Vote for US, by Joshua Douglas, Ph.D. (more information)He tells the story of how we led a governance reform effort in Sacramento. (more....)
- The League of Women Voters Sacramento County has an Observer Corps for the Sacramento Police Review Commission and we are working on something for the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department as well. (more...)
The League does not support or oppose candidates or political parties.
