Making Democracy Work

Election and Voting Help

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

  • Voters Service/Citizen Education: We present unbiased nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process, and issues.

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