League of Women Voters Mission Statement

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Increased accessibility to the electoral process is essential to ensuring a representative electoral process and every citizen’s right to vote. The fight for the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) was long and arduous, but the League stayed the course.

In the 1920s, Eleanor Roosevelt served as vice president for legislative affairs at the League, monitoring federal legislation and hearings in Congress. Watch this short video about how Eleanor's membership changed the League -- and how the League changed her.
