Support for the Proposed New Charter for Saratoga Springs

The League of Women Voters of Saratoga County announces its support for the proposed new charter for Saratoga Springs. The board of LWVSC took this position of support for the proposed new charter at its September board meeting, deciding that it met the requirements of the position on the Governance of Local Governments adopted in April, 2017. The membership reached that consensus following a study of local governments begun May 30, 2015.

Hands-on work to safeguard democracy

In this past year, the LWV of Saratoga County worked hard to make democracy work. Check out the 2016-2017 Steering Committee Report.

You can be part of a grass roots network of women and men in communities across the country. Here in Saratoga, we are actively involved in making democracy work. We conduct candidate forums, provide voter registration information to local High School seniors, produce an online Voters' Guide, and lobby on many important issues in Albany.

Because your local membership dues also enroll you at the state and national League levels only a small portion of the dues stay here in Saratoga County. We work hard to write grants and raise funds to support our events and activities, so we have been able to keep our dues at the same level for the past four years. Join our vibrant group!

Aside from membership, you can stand with us and support our efforts by making a donation to support our activities.
