About The League

Our Mission

The League of Women Voters is a NONPARTISAN political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy. The League never supports or opposes any political party or candidate.

The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles.

Voter Service/Citizen Education: We present unbiased nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process, and issues.

Action/Advocacy: While we are nonpartisan, after study, we use our positions to advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest.

To conduct our voter service and citizen education activities, we use funds from the League of Women Voters Education Fund, which is a 501(c)(3) corporation, a nonprofit educational organization. The League of Women Voters, a membership organization, conducts actions and advocacy and is a nonprofit 501(c)(4) corporation.

Our Vision, Beliefs, and Intentions guide our activities.
