Educate. Advocate. Empower.

EMPOWERING VOTERS

The League of Women Voters educates and advocates for voters, knowing that the leaders you elect make the decisions that affect YOU. The League helps you register, become informed on the candidates and issues, and to navigate the process of voting. We fight voter suppression and advocate for fair access to voting, including fair redistricting, better ballots, early voting, same day registration, vote by mail, and more.

NONPARTISAN
