Groundbreaking for the new Johnson County Courthouse

Shovels and SignCounty voters approved funding for the new courthouse to be built just Tractor and shovelsnorth of the current courthouse location.  The League of Women Voters of Johnson County worked to encourage voters to approve this needed judicial facility.  Many officials and citizens were welcomed and warm ‘thank yous’ to the voters of Johnson County were delivered.

We enjoyed our work to promote this campaign for the new courthouse.  The groundbreaking ceremony was the culmination of many years of work by many individuals and groups including LWVJoCo.

Summer Registration Events

League members out registering voters.Our voter registration volunteers were everywhere this summer. They were on foot at local events to ensure voters get registered before the August Primary Election. We’ve found this mobile method to be more effective while our citizens are out and about.
