Making Democracy Work

League of Women Voters Mississippi Gulf Coast

The Mississippi Gulf Coast League is an active and growing Local League including the counties of Hancock, Harrison, and Jackson. The Mississippi Gulf Coast League meets to listen to speakers from the community, to study local issues, to develop policy positions, to advocate for League positions, and to conduct voter service projects. Check out our Calendar for upcoming meetings and events.


Voter Services remains our principal priority, focusing on voter registration, voter education and getting voters to the polls. We also are advocating for public education, health and environmental issues. Volunteers are always welcome to help with our voter registration drives, education forums and other events.
