Making Democracy Work

ADVOCACY

The League Speaks in Support of our Positions.

The Two Separate and Distinct Roles of the League

The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles:

  • Voters Service/Citizen Education: We present unbiased nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process and issues.

  • Action/Advocacy: We are also nonpartisan, but, after study, we use our positions to advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest. We never advocate for candidates.
THIS PAGE IS ADVOCACY and contains references to advocacy by the League of Women Voters of South Carolina as well as the League of Women Voters of the Clemson Area.

To follow the action in the S. C. Legislature, learn how to track bills. The best way to learn how is to talk to someone familiar with the system, but, if you can't find someone, here are some instructions.
