Current Policy Priorities

The League of Women Voters is a peoples' organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage all Americans in the decisions that impact their lives.  That being said, our primary actions focus on the issues of Making Democracy Work at all levels. Most of our time revolves around voting and elections. We never endorse or oppose political parties or candidates, but we are political. 

 

Yet, there are many other issues that impact how our democracy functions. Our staff and issue specialists listen to Local Leagues as to issues of importance. Before every State Convention, Local Leagues inform us of directions we might take.
