ABOUT US
OUR HISTORY
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We envision a democracy
where every person
has the desire,
the right,
the knowledge,
and 
the confidence
to participate.

Since 1920, we have been an activist, grassroots organization whose leaders believed that voters should play a critical role in democracy.

We are women and men of all ages and backgrounds working to increase the understanding of major public policy issues and to influence public policy through education and advocacy.

The League of Women Voters is organized and works on three levels: local, state and national. At each level, a volunteer president and board of directors govern the League. League members belong to all three levels of the League—local, state and national.

We are Non-Partisan

We do not endorse or oppose political candidates or parties at any level of government.
We are a voice for all, working to connect people directly with their government.

We Advocate Based On Issues

In addition to voting rights and elections, the League works on many issues that help to promote an informed citizenry and active civic engagement on key issues of public policy. The League is committed to empowering voters to fully and skillfully participate in our democracy.

Our advocacy positions are based on the merits of each issue, after careful study and consensus.

We Aim To

We engage in our work to make sure that every citizen can vote and that there are no barriers to full participation by all.

We work to ensure that every citizen does vote. We hope to engage voters and get them to actively participate at the local, state, and federal level.

We work to ensure the public understands and participates in government.

We work to ensure that voter enfranchisement is protected.

We work to ensure a fair and equitable system that is accountable to the people.
