The League of Women Voters does not support parties or candidates, but it does advocate for positions on issues that members have studied and agreed on. Many of our issues are the basis for fair and democratic government practices.
The League of Women Voters does not endorse candidates and is not affiliated with any political party. We encourage informed and active participation in government, we work to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and we work to influence public policy through education and advocacy.
Membership in the League of Women Voters is open to men and women of all ages. When you join the LWV-Bozeman, you also belong to the LWV-Montana and the LWVUS.
Locally, the Bozeman League publishes the Citizen's Guide to Government which lists Bozeman and Gallatin County officials and committees along with their contact information; publishes a Voter's Guide which offers information about the candidates in their own words; registers voters; and holds public candidate forums before elections. Aside from "election work" we look at and advocate for issues that members have studied and agreed upon. Many of our issues are the basis for fair and democratic government practices.
The Bozeman League meets at 11:45 on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month from September through May. Programs are typically on a local, state or national topic of concern to League members. Some past topics included: the Affordable Care Act, coal trains going through Bozeman and a legislative wrap-up after the conclusion of the legislative session.
We meet at Hope Lutheran Church, 2152 W. Graf St. Members receive newsletters from LWVUS (electronic), LWVMT and LWV of the Bozeman Area (electronic or print).
Dues are $45/individual or $65/household (two members). Membership grants are available.
