The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging the informed and active participation of citizens in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Founded in 1954, the League of Women Voters of Kent has a rich tradition of providing voter registration and voter education that is open to the public and tackles local, state and national issues. In partnership with The Record-Courier, Kent LWV has compiled the popular Voter's Guide which the newspaper has published continuously for more than 50 years before elections.

We are committed to building a diverse organization that supports a community of respect, celebration and empowerment for people of all backgrounds, generations and cultures to participate in government.

Issue 1 passed with 75% of the vote.

That’s the new mantra across campus as Kent State students want to be counted – as voters, not just student residents. To kick off REV, Kent State committed to an all-across campus push.

The push will be handled in three stages - Registration...then Education, hopefully through a variety of forums and then pushing students to vote early, vote through absentee or to vote on Election Day, Nov. 6.
