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

  • Voters Services/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.
