WELCOME to the website of the League of Women Voters of Georgetown County. We are proud to have been active within this coastal community since 1981. Our continued focus on voting rights, voter education, open access to government and on issues of public concern have strengthened our reputation as a respected and effective participant in the American political process.
In an era when the political process is all too often driven by special interests, the League's advocacy is an essential element to promote the voice of democracy. Add your voice to ours: "Democracy works when people claim it as their own." (Bill Moyers - The Nation, Jan. 22, 2007).
We usually meet on the third Monday of each month, September through May and sometimes in summer, at 11:30 a.m. at Applewood Pancake House in Litchfield. Feel free to join us.
Use this website for information on how and where to register to vote, under the voter registration and elections tab.
Find who your elected public servants are and how to contact them under the elected public servants tab.
