Our Mission and Roles

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging the informed and active participation of citizens in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy. We never support or oppose any political party or candidate.

The League of Women Voters is where hands-on work to safeguard democracy leads to civic improvement.

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.

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