League Political Action

The purpose of the League of Women Voters is "to promote political responsibility through informed and active participation in government and to act on selected governmental issues."  The League is organized on a national, state, and local level. These are our primary concerns:

Protecting Voters
The League is dedicated to ensuring that all eligible voters – particularly those from traditionally underrepresented or underserved communities, including first-time voters, non-college youth, new citizens, minorities, the elderly and low-income Americans – have the opportunity and the information to exercise their right to vote. 

Educating and Engaging Voters
The leaders you elect make the decisions that affect you – your job, health care, energy costs, security and more. The League helps you to get registered, get to know the candidates and issues, and get out and vote.

Reforming Money in Politics
The League is deeply committed to reforming our nation's campaign finance system to ensure the public's right to know, combat corruption and undue influence, enable candidates to compete more equitably for public office and allow maximum citizen participation in the political process. We will continue this fight in Congress, with state legislatures, with the executive branch and, where appropriate, the courts.

Defending the Environment
The League supports legislation that seeks to protect our country from the physical, economic and public health effects of climate change while also providing pathways to economic prosperity.

Other work includes immigration reform, advancing health care, gun safety, fixing fiscal policy, improving government, and global democracy.
