The League of Women Voters of Calvert County assists citizens to become more informed participants in their community and their government by
producing Voters' Guides;
assisting at voter registration drives and providing information about voting;
conducting community forums on local, state, and national issues;
hosting forums for candidates;
distributing informational brochures;
and providing information about government on the national, state, and local levels.
The League also conducts studies on issues such as transportation, housing, environmental concerns, campaign reform, etc. (See the Elibrary for fact sheets from completed studies from LWVs all over the state.) After the study has been completed and a consensus has been reached, the League states its position. At that point, the League may encourage action and/or advocacy on the local, state, or national levels.
