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:
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
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.
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.
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.
