The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
Welcome to the website of the League of Women Voters of Arizona. We hope your visit will help you better understand the League and your government. Our focus on the issues and on encouraging true government of the people has earned the League its reputation as a respected and effective participant in the American political process in an era of proliferating and powerful special interests. The League's advocacy of the public interest is increasingly recognized as an essential voice of democracy. Please join us in our mission of being A Voice For Citizens - A Force For Change.
You can comment on these bills from home using the Request To Speak (RTS) system. When you use the RTS, then your comments will be read into the public record of this bill.
Previously, you had to go to the state Capitol to register...this is no longer the case. Please go to:
Remember when you lobby your legislators, you are not doing this in the name of the League, but only as a citizen. Only the state lobbyists speak for the League.
The Power Point is on the Request to Speak (RTS) program.
"Grady Gammage summed it up as: AZ is a challenge. Our government does not function; we, along with the rest of the US and the world, are in transition but we are not fully aware of it. Some want to go back to the days of housing being our economic engine, and it is not and will not be. How do we get the individual, society, and government on the "same page"? We have lost our common bonds, our common methods of communication; however, this is just a transition, not the end! In addition, the Morrison Institute will continue to engage the public in issues of importance to the public!
