Making Democracy Work

League of Women Voters of Macon Bibb

The League of Women Voters of Macon Bibb

The purpose of the League of Women Voters of Macon Bibb is to promote political responsibility through informed and active participation of citizens in government and to act on selected governmental issues. We do not support or oppose any political party or candidate. The LWV is a nonpartisan, issue driven organization that supports voters as active participants in the democratic process. We endeavor to encourage informed voting, and in that, to be more knowledgeable and more actively involved in the decisions made by our elected officials in Macon, Bibb County, at the state of Georgia level, and at the United States federal government level. The League promotes political responsibility specifically by targeting issues of concern, researching information, examining facts, engaging in civil discourse, and making informed votes. We make democracy work by using democratic processes to address issues. The League is about coming together to find answers to contemporary concerns and striving for greater participation by the American people. Nationally founded in 1920, the League was built on the historic gains of the suffrage movement by educating, encouraging and uniting disengaged citizens in becoming active and informed participants in democracy. The League has advanced an integrated plan to strengthen democracy at every level.
