Because Democracy is NOT a Spectator Sport


The League of Women Voters of the Oberlin Area, the only League in Lorain County, is a nonpartisan political organization that promotes informed and active participation in government. We welcome members from the entire county. 

"Today, I want to urge you to actively seek out the most contentious, polarized, gridlocked places you can find. Because so often, throughout our history, those have been the places where progress really happens - the places where minds are changed, lives transformed, where our great American story unfolds." 

Michelle Obama addressing Oberlin College graduates, 2015
