The heart and soul of the League of Women Voters is educating citizens to make informed decisions and to be involved in government. The Voter Services Committee works to increase turnout through voter registration and education. The League strives to ensure democracy works for every citizen by making sure every vote is counted and by following legislation impacting voting rights.
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan organization. It does not support or oppose candidates for public office in any election, nor does it take a stand for or against a political party. This ethic of fairness informs all of our educational activities.
