The League of Women Voters of Dare County is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. The Dare County group was formed in 1987 with fifteen members with Diane Henderson serving as the unit representative. Each year the organization publishes the Citizens Guide, a directory of elected officials and local services; sponsors public candidate forums; and hosts programs that increase awareness of public services and community issues.
