Citizen education and connecting citizens to the political process are roles the League was created to fulfill and remain our greatest strength. LWVSC has published the 6th edition of Know Your State: South Carolina Government as a guide to understanding how government works in our state and as a tool for effective citizen advocacy. First published in 1972, this comprehensive paperback provides information about the SC constitution and its history; the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of SC government; and sections on state education, finance, and taxation; and local government and home rule.
The new edition was the product of the efforts of many people. General editor was Holley H. Ulbrich, Professor Emerita of Economics, Clemson University, and a past LWVSC co-president. League leaders who contributed their expertise and experience in state government to this publication by writing or reviewing one or more sections include JoAnne Day, Janelle Rivers, Lynn Teague, and Catherine Watt. Former state legislator and retired Circuit Judge Gary Clary revised the judicial chapter. Thanks, too, to Anita T. Baker, Connie Deerin, Janelle Rivers, and Nancy Williams for serving as editors in the publication process.
