As a service to our community, The League of Women Voters of the South Bend Area publishes the Citizen's Guide to Representative Government, a comprehensive collection of contact information for local, state, and national government offices, plus St. Joseph County voting information.

Local libraries, public offices, and businesses distribute the print edition the Citizen's Guide, and they are always available at community events where the League is present.
