Democracy not a spectator sport

Editor, Ceres Courier,

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government. As an organization, we do not support or oppose candidates for public office. This has been our policy since our founding over 100 years ago. We work to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influence public policy through education and advocacy.

As the June 7 Election Day draws near it’s time to mark your ballot. All registered voters in Stanislaus County have received information by mail from the Registrar of Voters Office with explicit instructions on how and where ballots can be dropped off. I chose to mail mine today. Having met with our Registrar of Voters, Donna Linder, to discuss and observe the security measures taken by our election office I feel assured that my ballot will be counted.

When completing your ballot, be sure to utilize your Sample Ballot for candidate information and also check the League’s site at This website is sponsored with the California State League of Women Voters and can give you additional candidate information, provided by State and Local candidates. You can also track your ballot from this site.

League of Women Voters says vote and let your voice be heard.

Democracy is not a spectator sport.

Laurie Carley,

LWVSC President
