engages communities in promoting positive solutions to public policy issues through education and advocacy.
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan, nonprofit political organization that:
Encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government.
Works to increase understanding of major public policy issues.
Influences public policy through education and advocacy.
Being nonpartisan, the League does not support or oppose candidates for public office in any election, nor does it take a stand for or against a political party.

While the League urges its members to be politically active, certain constraints are necessary in order to maintain the nonpartisanship of the organization.
