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.

League in the Spotlight

The twenty local Leagues throughout Wisconsin are busy every day empowering voters and defending democracy in successful and innovative ways. The League in the Spotlight feature is designed to highlight and share unique aspects of their work, one League at a time, in bimonthly email communications to the full membership. Each League feature is now archived here. These programs and events continue to teach, inspire, and showcase the important work League members do in their communities.  

Your support goes directly to the League's work to protect and defend our democracy. Together we ensure our elections are free, fair and accessible; protect our environment; and reduce the influence of money in our elections.

If you live in an area with a local League, you can join and be part of the action in your community. If not, you can join as a member-at-large of League of Women Voters of Wisconsin. Either way, you will be part of a network of women and men who help make democracy work in your community and throughout Wisconsin!
