Our Mission

Our Roles

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 advocate for or against particular government policies and legislative proposals on the basis of our current program

Our Program

Our LWV program consists of action to implement
  •  LWV principles or concepts of government that the League supports, and 
  •  our positions on particular governmental issues

  We are a grassroots organization.
  Issues are chosen by members for study and ultimate action.

  During the study phase, issue team members conduct their research, then lead discussion in which members identify areas of agreement or consensus.
  From member consensus a position statement on the issue is adopted.
  If no position is adopted, action/advocacy on that issue cannot be taken.
