Everyone is busy. Voting can be complicated.  We can help.
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan, grassroots organization working to protect and expand voting rights and ensure everyone is represented in our democracy. We empower voters and defend democracy through advocacy, education, and litigation, at the local, state, and national levels.

"Our recent poll found that the League of Women Voters Oakland has the highest level of public trust among likely voters more than any other named organization, public official or educational institution."
