Making Democracy Work

Make Democracy Work!

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Primary Runoffs are June 26th

If you voted in a primary, you can only vote in that party's runoffs. For example, if you voted in the Democratic primary, you cannot vote in the Republican runoff.

If you did not vote in the June 12th primary, you may vote in either runoff.
