Empowering Voters. Defending Democracy.

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. We never support or oppose any political party or candidate. We study public issues and take stands on them so that we can support or oppose ballot measures, proposed laws and government actions and educate our fellow citizens about significant policy issues. The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles.

Voters Service/Citizen Education: The women and men of the League of Women Voters work to make sure that every citizen can vote, every vote is counted and every voter has fair and unbiased, nonpartisan information about the issues on the ballot and the candidates’ opinions.

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