Observer Corps

Monitoring local government meetings is a long-established practice of League of Women Voters. It is one approach to help inform citizens about current issues and their governments. 

Observer Corps exists to foster transparency and accountability. Members of League's Observer Corps listen, learn and report factual information about proceedings in local municipal, school, library and township boards. Observers are monitoring both the issues being discussed as well as the process by which they are being discussed.
