The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan, multipurpose organization of women and men that encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government and influences policy through education and advocacy. The League does not support or oppose candidates or political parties. We do provide a forum where all candidates to an office can state their own positions.

Dear Friends and Members of the League of Women Voters,

As health concerns related to the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) grow, the League’s public outreach work will be affected as we all focus on the safety of our families and our communities. With that in mind, we urge everyone to monitor announcements from our State Department of Health and from the CDC in making decisions about hosting or attending public meetings and events.


Action Alerts

Contact your state legislators and tell them you want mail-in voting added as a option for this November's election.
