THE LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS OF DELTA COUNTY
The Delta County League has always kept its focus on Voter Services. We are respected in our community for non-partisan candidate forums and voter education. Our printed Voter Guides in election years are sought out, and we actively promote the use of Vote411 as an online tool. We present public programs on timely topics. In the near future, we hope to educate our citizens on the importance of participating in the 2020 census. Our only fund raiser is an Annual Used Book Sale in early August. Membership meetings are normally held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.
