LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS OBSERVER CORPS
Monitoring local government meetings is a long-established practice of the League of Women Voters. It is one approach to help inform citizens about current issues and their governments. Members volunteer to attend or watch a meeting and share what they observed in a written report.
STUDENT GOVERNMENT LEADERS
For more than 50 years, our League has run the Student Government Leaders program to enhance students’ knowledge of local government. 8th grade students from area schools study topics alongside elected village officials, then participate in a televised mock board meeting.
