ORGANIZATION: LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS OF SEATTLE KING COUNTY EDUCATION FUND

  • 4 people are interested

Did you know that 18-24 year olds make up the largest age group in King County, yet have the lowest voter turnout rate? The League wants that to change, and we need your help!

Do you have a passion for volunteer work, excellent communication and organization skills, and a vision for a thriving democracy? We need you! We are heading into a very busy election season and are looking for a volunteer coordinator to support our Voter Services volunteers, getting them out into the field registering and educating voters. This year, we are focusing on supporting first-time youth voters. We already have a number of requests from schools and community organizations to help GOTV, and our volunteers are at the ready. We just need someone to manage the calendar, promote new opportunities as they come in, and track our success in the field.

If you are interested in supporting this key demographic, please reach out.

Mission Statement

The League of Women Voters of Seattle-King County believes that sensible, responsible civil discourse and action based on substance rather than partisanship is essential for civic improvement and that we can help make democracy work through informed participation in government.

Description

Empowering Voters. Defending Democracy.
The League of Women Voters of Seattle-King County is a nonprofit, nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. Formed one year after the national League of Women Voters was born out of the suffrage movement in 1920, the League of Women Voters has been at the forefront of numerous civic initiatives and accomplishments. While we do not rate or endorse political candidates, we do sponsor free, nonpartisan candidate debates and organize periodic forums on ballot issues and other important civic concerns. The League also advocates on issues such as education, transportation, land use, ethics and healthcare.

The League is Nonpartisan
As an organization, the League does not support or oppose political parties or candidates.

The League is Political
The League takes action on selected governmental issues based on a firm foundation of positions derived from careful study. The League uses these positions as a basis to support or oppose governmental policies or ballot issues.

The League is a Resource for Your Community
We are prepared to speak on civic engagement and election issues, as well as moderate candidate debates. The League also monitors elections for condo associations, resident councils, and other organizations.
