Making Democracy Work

Because democracy is not a spectator sport

The League of Women Voters of Sudbury is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. We influence public policy through education and advocacy.

Visit the Massachusetts League's on-line Voters' Guide for information about the candidates running in the November election.

Town Meeting October 15 at 7:30 p.m.

The League of Women Voters of Sudbury urges a YES vote on three Town Meeting warrant articles:
(postponed) Article 1--the Melone property;
Article 2--Broadacres Farm acquisition; and
Article 7--Bruce Freeman Rail Trail design.

The League does not have positions that cover most of the other articles before Town Meeting or has chosen not to take stands on those articles, and therefore does not officially support nor oppose any other articles.

The Sudbury League encourages voters to attend Town Meeting starting Monday, Oct. 15, at 7:30 p.m. in the Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School auditorium.

Time to Join the League of Women Voters!

Last year the Sudbury League of Women Voters had over 60 members, which allowed the League to have a strong impact on both local and state issues. We invite you to join us to continue our work for the 2018-2019 year. Click here for details on how to join.

You can help in locally in Sudbury at Candidates' Nights, voter registration drives, issues forums, and the civics bee. We plan action as well on domestic violence, gun control, the environments, and other issues.

The Sudbury LWV also contributed to lobbying for legislation at the state level including automatic voter registration, a strong criminal justice reform package, the pregnant workers' fairness act; the ACCESS bill to provide contraceptive coverage without co-pays or deductibles and the repeal of archaic laws targeting abortion and contraception.
