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. 

DEFENDING DEMOCRACY

The League encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues and influences public policy through education and advocacy. 

NONPARTISAN

The League is proud to be nonpartisan, neither supporting nor opposing candidates or political parties at any level of government, but always working on vital issues of concern to members and the public.
