The League of Women Voters is a citizens’ organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage all citizens in the decisions that impact their lives. We operate at national, state and local levels through more than 800 state and local Leagues, in all 50 states as well in Washington, DC, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Hong Kong.

Formed from the movement that secured the right to vote for women, the centerpiece of the League’s efforts remain to expand participation in the political process and give a voice to all Americans. We do this at all three levels of government, engaging in both broad educational efforts as well as advocacy. Our issues are grounded in our respected history of making democracy work for all citizens.

The League is nonpartisan, which means we don’t support or oppose candidates for public office. However, we are well known for hosting candidate debates and forums. We undertake this, and other important election work, because we believe deeply that the public should hear different views on the issues facing our communities and our nation. An honest and respectful sharing of ideas is vital to the functioning of American democracy.

Leagues at all levels conduct educational activities – whether they are related to understanding candidate views and ballot initiatives, or on a range of specific critical public policy issues. At the national level, the League of Women Voters Education Fund, a 501 (c )(3) organization, coordinates all of our elections and educational work. But being nonpartisan does not mean we lack opinions, or the willingness to express them.

Our opinions are formed after research, study and consensus. We are passionate advocates – both women and men – who work to influence policy on specific issues by speaking out and putting pressure on our elected leaders.

The League is a national organization, with strong and respected ties in states and localities around the country. Members are volunteers who work in their communities to help the realities of the America system of government live up to its ideals.
