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.
- Voters Service/Citizen Education: Through its publications and programs , The League provides unbiased, nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process, and issues.
- Action/Advocacy: The League is nonpartisan. However, after study, the League may advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest.
To conduct its voter service and citizen education activities, The League uses 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 action and advocacy and is a nonprofit 501(c)(4) corporation.
Our Vision, Beliefs, and Intentions guide our activities.
