Making Democracy Work

Voter Education

We make voting easier through varied voter education programs.

The League of Women Voters Education Fund conducts voter service and citizen education activities. It is a nonpartisan nonprofit public policy educational organization, which:

  • Builds citizen participation in the democratic process.

  • Studies key community issues at all government levels in an unbiased manner.

  • Enables people to seek positive solutions to public policy issues through education and conflict management.

Donations to the Education Fund, a 501(c)(3)corporation, are fully tax-deductible where allowed by law.

Voter Services

Purpose Since the establishment of the League in 1920, LWV members have pursued a two-fold mission of education and advocacy. Citizen education, or voter services, promotes the active and informed participation of citizens in government. Through Voters Service, the League provides nonpartisan, factual information on government, political parties, voting procedures, election issues and candidates. The League also encourages citizens to participate in the electoral process by registering voters, hosting or co-hosting "Candidates Forums."

Our Mission To have citizens think for themselves and provide nonpartisan information to enable them to make that decision. We do that by issueing a Voter's Guide and hosting or co-hosting candidate forums. In addition to the voters' guide and candidates forums, Voter Services also updates our "They Represent You" (TRY) booklet on a yearly basis.
