Our Mission

The mission of the League of Women Voters of Athens County is to create a sense of community in the neighborhoods and townships where people live and work. We hope that our efforts will lead to more civic engagement and thus more cultural, educational and social opportunities, creating a better place for all to live.

The core mission of the League of Women Voters of Athens County (LWVAC) is to provide local voter services. We are a non-partisan, issue-oriented organization committed to registering people to vote and to inform voters about candidates and issues. We partner with the Athens Messenger to produce the the Voter Guide, which is printed and distributed countywide, as well as being available on our website. Visit www.vote411.org for more information.

 

The LWVAC also sponsors candidate forums and town hall meetings to give voters the opportunity to learn about the candidates and the issues that would appear on the ballot. The focus of LWVAC includes concerns of local impact, as well as issues designated by LWVOhio and LWVUS, with the goal of sharing information with the public in order to promote informed voting.
