ABOUT THE LWVW


The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influence public policy through education and advocacy.

The League of Women Voters has been steadily active through the years since its founding - always focused on voter services. Working on local, state and national issues, the local League had made its mark through study groups, consensus votes, local forums and debates.
