PDF icon About the Bozeman League 

The Bozeman League of Women Voters works to encourage active and informed participation in government. The Bozeman League conducts candidate forums for local Montana Legislative seats, Gallatin County elected offices, Bozeman and Belgrade City Commission positions, and Bozeman and Belgrade school trustee positions.  We also produce a Voter Guide for even year fall general elections that covers statewide and local races.

Our Voter Registration Committee provides New Voter Bags to high school seniors at Bozeman, Gallatin, Belgrade, Three Forks, Lone Peak and Browning High Schools.  The New Voter Bags contain snacks and voter registration forms.  This project is very popular with teachers and students and many students complete the registration forms.  We also do Voter Registration at naturalization ceremonies in Butte and at public events around Bozeman and Belgrade.

The Bozeman League has an active Observer Corps.  Members attend and observe Gallatin County Commission meetings, Bozeman City Commission meetings and Bozeman School Board meetings.  Members then write articles about the meetings for the monthly Voter.

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 positions on issues is here: Microsoft Office document icon bozeman_positions.pdf
