Welcome to the website of the League of Women Voters of South Carolina. 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. I hope you will join us in our mission of being A Voice For Citizens -- A Force For Change.
