We envision a democracy where every person has the desire,
the right, the knowledge and the confidence to participate..
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization.
The LWV encourages informed and active participation in government.
It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles.
• Voters Service/Citizen Education: we present unbiased nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process, and issues, and we organize candidate forums. We never support or oppose any political party or candidate.
• Action/Advocacy: While the League is non-partisan, we use our Program Positions (see below) to advocate for or against particular policies and legislative proposals.
We are a grassroots organization. Our LWV Program consists of public issues chosen by members for study and ultimate action.
As a study progresses, study team members fashion consensus questions that will then be addressed by the full League membership.
Through discussion, League members reach consensus.
From member consensus, the board drafts a position statement for member approval.
If no position is adopted, action/advocacy on that issue cannot be taken.
