Wisconsin

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan, grassroots, political organization established in 1920 that advocates for informed and active participation in government. Our members are women and men who work to improve our systems of government and impact public policies through education and advocacy. 

The League neither supports nor opposes candidates for office at any level of government. At the same time, the League is wholeheartedly political and works to influence policy through advocacy. 

Are you looking to get involved? Join us to make democracy work in Wisconsin!
