Why Become a Member

Because you want to make a difference. You know the future depends on people like you — people learning about the issues, discussing pro’s and con’s civilly with those who disagree or seek clarification, speaking out in ways that make people feel included and respected, rather than excluded, and seeking positive, pragmatic, reasonable solutions to the challenges we face in our communities and our country.

When you join the League of Women Voters, you’re doing something good for democracy — and good for yourself. As a member of the League, you will:

  • Stay informed about issues and government— engaging with others who seek to learn about issues we can address together by advocating for legislation and with government officials
  • Make your voice heard — as an engaged citizen and as a member of the most respected nonpartisan political organization in our country, an organization known for making a difference
  • Sharpen Your Skills — as you join experienced advocates for our Democracy who carry on a legacy dating back for more than a century

Where We’re Going Today

Today, the League at all levels is engaged in an exciting new effort to address the distrust and hostility that dominate public debate in America:

  • We’re Advocating for changes in the political process, including campaign finance reform that will reduce special interest influence and make elections fair.
  • We’re Getting Voters to the polls, because the system won’t change unless we, all together, hold government accountable and vote.
  • We’re Creating Opportunities for citizens to come together to discuss issues and shape solutions for the future.
  • We’re Educating Citizens, giving them the knowledge and the tools that they need.
