Nine goals were presented for the coming year, defined as “Building on League Momentum”. Efforts center around the League Vision: We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge and the confidence to participate. The six counties served by the Hill Country League have a good rate of voter registration, but the actual voter turnout is low. Providing election information to help every eligible voter make a candidate choice and know when and where to go vote is the focus of League efforts.

The League of Women Voters serves as a grassroots network and membership organization, which believes the freedom to vote is a nonpartisan issue and encourages active participation in government. Anyone aged 16 and older can become a member. Beginning in Kerr County more than 40 years ago, this League now has members who live in six Hill Country counties, including Bandera, Blanco, Gillespie, Kendall, Kerr, and Llano.
