Making Democracy Work

The Queen Anne's County League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization that encourages informed and active participation in government and works to increase understanding of national, state and local public policy through education and advocacy.

 

The Maryland Primary Election has been postponed until June 2, 2020.  We anticipate holding a candidate forum closer to the election date and will post information about a LWV Maryland District 1 Primary Forum when we have established a time and place.

 

The Vote for Women

This is the story of the role of the suffragettes in the passing of the 19th Amendment and the founding of the League of Women Voters (LWV), as told through stories of women whose ancestors had to struggle for voting rights. The public needs to be reminded of what the suffragettes fought for and why the LWV was founded, to ensure that voters are informed when they go to the polls to vote. Empowering voters defends democracy and democracy is worth fighting for!
