Interested in supporting the LWV South Bend Area through a Citizen's Guide Sponsorship?

For as long as any member can recall, the League of Women Voters has published the Citizen's Guide to Representative Government, a comprehensive collection of contact information for local, state, and national government offices, plus St. Joseph County voting information.

The League distributes this valuable citizen resource free of charge at public places such as libraries, public offices and local businesses. We update the Guide following most November elections to keep it as current as possible and sometimes reprint between updates as demand dictates and purse strings permit. Organizations and individuals often tell us how eager they are for each new edition.

Your ongoing support will be most appreciated and will help ensure the League is able to continue Making Democracy Work® by making this legacy publication available to local citizens.
