Making Democracy Work

Because democracy is not a spectator sport

The League of Women Voters does not support or oppose any political party or candidate. It is a political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.

A Successful Fall Kickoff

League Takes Action

Escondido Public Library There's a proposal to hire a private for-profit agency to administer the Escondido Public Library. We sent a letter to the Escondido Mayor and City Council with our opposition to privatization of essential public services.

Further, the League believes that transparency, accountability, and preservation of the common good must be ensured.
