One of the primary reasons people are interested in joining the League of Women Voters is to help activate their communities to take part in democracy. The most basic right we have is the right to vote, and the League wants to be sure we do all we can to support active voter participation.

Many of our members are certified as voter registrars. If you would like to become a voter registrar, contact Allene Harding at

The League of Women Voters are available to register voters monthly at Wheaton Public Library, 225 N. Cross St., Wheaton, IL.
