League of Women Voters of Montgomery County, MD
The LWV encourages informed and active participation in government to increase understanding of major public policy issues and to influence public policy through education and advocacy.
We are Moving to a New Location!
Our old office on Parklawn Dr will close on Friday, November 20.
The office will officially reopen on Monday, December 7 at our new location: 15800 Crabbs Branch Way, Suite 300, Rockville 20855. Give us a call at 301-984-9585 or send us an email at email@example.com, and we will get back to you.
LWVMC pays tribute to U.S. citizens
who voted in record numbers in 2020 (estimated 67%).
The voice of the people was heard.
We applaud the candidates who campaigned
to represent us in governing.
The League honors the MD and MoCo
Board of Elections that created a convenient,
safe, and secure election process.
We thank all election and poll workers.
