The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan, community-based organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage all citizens in the decisions that impact our lives. The League is nonpartisan, which means it neither supports nor opposes candidates or parties.
We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge and the confidence to participate.
We believe hands-on work safeguards democracy, which leads to civic improvement. To fulfill our mission, we:
+ Educate citizens about issues, legislation and candidates.
+ Encourage individual participation in the political process.
+ Inform voters through in-depth, objective study.
+ Monitor local, state and national government bodies and activities.
+ Register voters.
+ Sponsor candidate forums and public issue forums.
Members gain knowledge and experience and discover new interests through the study and discussion of timely issues and topics. Through participation in League activities, members contribute valuable services to the community, building a stronger democracy.
