The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. The League influences public policy through education and advocacy, but will never support or oppose any political party or candidate.

The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles.

Voters Service-Citizen Education:
To present unbiased nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process, and issues.

Action-Advocacy
We are nonpartisan, but, after study, we use our positions to advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest.

To conduct our voter service and citizen education activities, we use funds from the League of Women Voters Education Fund, which is a 501(c)(3) corporation, a nonprofit educational organization. The League of Women Voters, a membership organization, conducts action and advocacy and is a nonprofit 501(c)(4) corporation.
