Rooted in the century-long movement that secured the right to vote for women, the League of Women Voters has worked to foster civic engagement and enhance access to the vote since our founding in 1920.
Over time our work has evolved from efforts to gain and foster women’s suffrage to ensuring that all eligible voters -- particularly those from traditionally underrepresented or under-served communities, including first-time voters, non-college youth, new citizens, minorities, the elderly and voters with disabilities -- have the opportunity and the information to exercise their right to vote.
We welcome women, men, young adults, and teens to join our League.
Dues are $60 per year.
Family membership is $85 per year.
Student membership is free.
