The President’s Perspective

Carole Jordan, Chapter President

I have a confession to make. There have been a few times in the past when I went into the voting booth without having researched my local school board races. Other positions got more publicity and had more money for advertising, so the school board was low on my list, leaving me guessing or not voting at all in some important local contests. I admit I was wrong. I’ll never do it again. Read my full message to learn why.

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

  • Voters Services/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.

Join LWVTSC and start making a difference in our community. League membership is open to all women and men age 16 or older.
