Making Democracy Work


We urge you to join the League of Women Voters, where . . .

  • Your hands-on work to safeguard democracy leads to civic improvement.
  • You have volunteer opportunities to promote voter education.
  • You have opportunities for civic involvement.
  • You can be directly involved in shaping the important issues to keep our community strong.
  • Your membership dues are supporting League actions in creating an informed electorate.


Any person 16 or older may become an active and voting member of the League. Membership in any local league automatically confers membership at the state and national levels. With membership comes the opportunity to work on local, state, regional and national issues. For more information on membership, contact


Membership dues, the most important part of our overall income, meet the administrative expenses of our League. They support our community forums, membership meetings, and voter education through candidate forums, voter services, and community education. A portion of each member's annual dues is paid to the National and State LWV to assist their efforts on behalf of all Leagues.
