Democracy Is Not a Spectator Sport

The League of Women Voters of the Rogue Valley faces a busy 2024.  We walk a fine line between being a non-partisan voter education service, yet advocating for issues which our members have studied and discussed.   After a brief history of the Rogue Valley League, we will identify the local issues the 2024 election year will address.  The League stays out of candidate recommendations, but we do ask questions—because “Democracy is not a Spectator Sport.”

The Voters Service Chair for the League of Women Voters of the Rogue Valley, Kathleen Donham will present a brief history of Voting Rights in the United States and Oregon, followed by concerns about the future of enfranchisement. Who gets to vote in a democracy? What are the outcomes of universal suffrage?
