Making Democracy Work

Democracy is not a spectator sport!

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Proposed Local Programs 2016-17

CIVICS BEE - The Weston League, together with the Wayland and Sudbury Leagues, will again sponsor a Civics Bee in 2017, in a spirit of friendly competition. Weston will host the 2017 Civics Bee, on a date to be announced. The 2015 Civics Bee, held on March 15, was won by the Wayland team, in a very closely-fought contest.

LOCAL ISSUE FORUMS - The League will continue our series of Saturday morning Coffee Hours and informational meetings on topics of local interest, including issues facing the town, and opportunities to meet and converse with local officials and elected state representatives, in an effort to encourage greater and more informed participation in the democratic process on the part of town residents.

VOTER SERVICES - The League will sponsor voter registration drives as appropriate to increase the voter rolls and to encourage registered voters to exercise their right to vote in an informed way. We will conduct Candidates' and Issues Nights before local and state elections and offer rides to the polls for people in need of transportation.
