Making Democracy Work

President's Message

President's Message Winter 2018

Welcome to the League of Women Voters San Jose/Santa Clara website. I am honored to be this year's president.

This spring we have many voter service activities in the planning stages--candidate forums, voter registrations among them. Since 1920, the League has fought to improve our government and engage all citizens in the democratic process. Because of our reputation for fairness, we are invited to provide many candidate forums and studies on ballot measures.

On April 2nd, we will host our first candidate forum this season for District 9. This April we have many voter service activities in the planning stages--candidate forums, voter registrations among them. Since 1920, the League has fought to improve our government and engage all citizens in the democratic process. Because of our reputation for fairness, we are invited to provide many candidate forums and studies on ballot measures. Please contact the League if you would like assistance moderating a forum.

Recently League members met with and registered students at Oak Grove High School and Harker Academy. We also assisted the Registrar of Voters by registering voters at the Robert Kennedy Memorial.

The League of Women Voters CA is strongly supporting Make It Fair, now titled The California Schools and Local Communities Funding Act. Our members will be assisting with signature gathering, securing other endorsements and reaching out to the community and local officials to get this measure on the November ballot.

Thank you for supporting us as we work towards a stronger democracy.
