Making Democracy Work

Empowering voters. Defending democracy.

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. We influence public policy through education and advocacy. We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge, and the confidence to participate.
