The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
In June, the legislature passed HB 1300, which was vetoed by the governor. They are back again with a new version of that same bill. HB 1800 is a cynical attempt to make voting harder and more inconvenient, make the system more confusing, change deadlines, roll back voter choice, reduce the availability of drop boxes and limit satellite election offices.

Candidates Night is a free, public program and all community members are encouraged to participate. The candidates for two offices, the Indiana County Office of Register of Wills, Recorder of Deeds, and Clerk of Orphan’s Court (i.e., Register and Recorder) and the Judge of Common Pleas Court of Indiana County (i.e., Judge) were invited to participate in Candidates Night. This nonpartisan forum allows candidates for office to respond to questions posed by audience members. The event was broadcast over radio station 1160 WCCS. The League of Women Voters of Indiana County has been leading nonpartisan voter registration and education efforts in Indiana County since 1973.

League of Women Voters has a 100-year history of striving to make democracy work for all citizens. Its roots are in the suffragist movement, but it quickly moved from the enfranchisement of women to take on the issues of the day – always in a non-partisan framework supported by volunteers.
