Politics and politicians change, the League of Women Voters’ mission does not

An "I voted early" sticker

For the last century, the mission of the League of Women Voters has been to empower voters and defend democracy. Recently, a candidate we invited to participate in a candidate forum stated in a paid advertisement that they would not attend a debate hosted by the League, calling it a “liberal farce designed to fool voters.”

This statement could not be farther from the truth. For 102 years, we have successfully encouraged informed and active participation in government at the local, state, and national levels. The League works to increase understanding of policy issues, advocating for legislative changes and policies for the public good. The League does not advocate for or support political parties or candidates.

Although the League is nonpartisan and our work is performed with that as a requirement, the League encourages active participation in the democratic process. Our membership is comprised of all political persuasions; they are Republicans, Libertarians, Democrats, NPAs, Green Party, liberal, conservative, and everyone in between. All are welcome who support the League’s mission, vision, and values.
