How We Work

We are non-partisan, but we are political. Our activities fall into three categories:

Voter Service: The League is well-known for promoting informed voting. We provide voter registration, candidates forums, impartial information on ballot measures, and educational meetings on issues of public concern.

Program: The League of Women Voters takes positions on local, state and national issues only after members have studied and reached agreement on them. These League positions and pertinent fact-finding are the basis for public meetings.

Advocacy: The League never supports or opposes political parties or candidates. Based on positions developed through member study and agreement, the League does take action to support or oppose specific governmental policies.
