“ABOUT THE FREDERICKSBURG AREA LEAGUE & LEADERSHIP

The League of Women Voters of the Fredericksburg Area

 

The League of Women Voters of the Fredericksburg Area was organized in the 1970’s and reconstituted in 2016.

Since then, we have been actively involved in educating and registering voters, studying issues of local governmental importance and advocating for action on League positions.

Our activities include:

·      Organizing candidate forums for local and county elections

·      Publishing and distributing our “FACTS FOR VOTERS” annual directory of public officials serving the City of Fredericksburg and the counties of Stafford, Spotsylvania, King George and Caroline at the national, state, county, and local levels, with information on voting and registration.  FACTS FOR VOTERS is circulated to government offices, libraries, businesses, and other public places

·      Conducting a study and developing a position statement on affordable housing for low-income seniors in the greater Fredericksburg area

·      Sponsoring or co-sponsoring member and public education events

·      Co-sponsoring with the University of Mary Washington and other groups candidate forums

·      Registering people to vote and disseminating voter information to the public

·      Publishing a monthly newsletter for members and a Facebook page and Instagram account with information on elections and other issues of interest
