About the Bozeman League
The Bozeman League publishes the Citizen's Guide to Government which lists Bozeman and Gallatin County officials and committees along with their contact information; publishes a Voter's Guide which offers information about the candidates in their own words; registers voters; and holds public candidate forums before elections. Aside from "election work" we look at and advocate for issues that members have studied and agreed upon. Many of our issues are the basis for fair and democratic government practices.
The Bozeman League meets at 11:45 on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month from September through May. Programs are typically on a local, state or national topic of concern to League members. Some past topics included: the Affordable Care Act, coal trains going through Bozeman and a legislative wrap-up after the conclusion of the legislative session.

Bozeman 2020 Voter Guide:
The fall 2020 Voter Guide covers elections for the U.S. Senate, U.S. House, Montana Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, Auditor, Superintendent of Public Instruction, Montana Supreme Court Justices, Public Service Commission, Montana Senate, Montana House, Gallatin County Commissioner, and Clerk of District Court. Candidates are listed in alphabetical order and their responses are presented exactly as submitted.
Candidates running for uncontested seats are listed but were not asked to submit information. The League of Women Voters presents this guide a part of its Voter Education mission. The League does not endorse candidates and we are not affiliated with political parties. We thank the Bozeman Daily Chronicle for its assistance with this Voter Guide. We hope this information is helpful
to you in determining which candidates will best represent you in the coming term and we urge you to exercise your right and your civic duty to vote on November 3.
