The mission of the League of Women Voters is to encourage informed and active participation in government. We do not support or oppose any candidates or political parties. We register voters, invite candidates to answer questions from voters in person, provide voters with information on both sides of an issue and work to help people understand how the act of voting can affect day-to-day life.
