We wish to expand citizen participation in the election process and in federal, state, and local government decision making
To conduct our voter service and citizen education activities, we use 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.
We wish to secure public policies that promote League positions based on member participation and agreement. Founded as a women's organization in 1920, it is now open to membership by all citizens of voting age.
Our members are also members of:
- Action/Advocacy: we are also nonpartisan, but, after study, we use our positions to advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest.
Our Vision, Beliefs, and Intentions
guide our activities.
We promote civility in public discourse.
