Empowering and Educating Voters and Defending Our Democracy
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization which encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
We Show Up
We are out in the community offering opportunities to register to vote as well as educational forums related to voter education and community issues. Farmers markets, schools, public events – anywhere potential voters are, we can be there. We visit the area high schools twice a year, to register students who have reached voting age. We attend citizenship opportunities to assist new citizens with their voter registration.
We Keep Voters Informed
We coordinate and support candidate forums prior to school board, mayoral, city council, and state congressional elections.
We work with other Leagues and voting rights organizations to put on voter education and community programs.
We Fund Ourselves
We are primarily member- supported through membership dues, an annual plant sale, and a holiday silent auction. The silent auction funds are donated to local nonprofits.
We’re a Team
We work together in the areas of advocacy, voter services, and programming. Member committees strategize how to best serve our communities. We pursue a mission of diversity, equity, and inclusion—our League is open to everyone ages 16 and up.
We’re In the Know
As a member you receive a chapter newsletter five times a year, which includes upcoming events, announcements, and other useful information. You will also receive notices from the state and federal organization about legislation, calls to action, and legislative updates.
