The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan community based volunteer organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage all citizens in the decisions that impact our lives. The League does not endorse candidates or political parties. Community volunteers operate at national, state and local levels through more than 800 state and local Leagues, in all 50 states as well in DC, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Hong Kong.
