Civic Participation

Members of the League of Women Voters of St Tammany are activists dedicated to providing voters in the Parish with the information needed to make effective voting decisions.

Monthly, a core group of members meet to review the Parish Council Agenda and to discuss issues of mutual interests. After the meeting, the leadership team gathers to manage the League’s business.

Annually, the members come together at an annual meeting to conduct formal League business and renew old friendships.

Throughout the year members may form special projects such as voter registration or candidate profiles. The team members tend to work remotely and coordinate by phone and email.


What the League does

Monitoring and Reporting

In St Tammany Parish the League monitors parish government and reports findings of concern to the membership. The monthly Parish Council agenda reviews are an example of the monitor and report cycle. Monitoring occurs throughout the year. Reporting may be as simple as an email to key people, a post to the League’s Facebook page, or a post to the Reports category of this weblog.

Voter Services

During election years the pace picks up as various projects kick off to provide members and voters needed information about the election. Usually the work informs members of issues concerning voting in St Tammany. Occasionally the work may extend to providing candidate profiles. Information about voting would appear in this weblog under Elections category and the candidate profiles would appear under Candidates.

Advocacy and Action

On a daily basis League members either individually or in small groups participate in special interest areas like healthcare, the environment, planning and zoning. Here the action is dynamic and changes occur daily. The League supports the members by providing a home on Facebook. Look there for the latest happenings in the League
