Vision, Mission and/or Purpose of Organization

Neither supporting nor opposing any political party or candidate, League of Women Voters encourages all citizens to register to vote, to learn about economic, social, natural resources, and civic issues affecting their communities, and to learn where candidates stand on those concerns and opportunities. Healthy communities result when their citizens become informed and exercise their right to vote every election, local, state, and national.

History of Organization

An outgrowth of the women's suffrage movemement, League of Women Voters began in 1920 to educate women about their newly won right to partipcate in the democratic process of electing individuals to represent them in their government. Under the leadership of Carrie Chapman Catt, LWV United States worked then and continues to work to ensure that all voices are heard by elected leaders.
