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. We are political, but nonpartisan. We never support or oppose any political party or candidate. Membership is open to all. Current dues are $55 a year, most of which is paid to the state and national League of Women Voters. We have some funds available to assist with dues for those of modest means.

OF GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC

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)
