About Us
 

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan, grassroots organization working to protect and expand voting rights and ensure everyone is represented in our democracy. We empower voters and defend democracy through advocacy, education, and litigation, at the local, state, and national levels.

The national League was founded in 1919 as an auxiliary to the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA), and was designed as a non-partisan organization dedicated to educating women for their new political role.

The League replaced NAWSA after women were granted the right to vote in 1920. At the same time, New Jersey launched a state organization in Newark. Since 1920, many communities established local leagues. Founders of the League of Women Voters of Lawrence Township began their organizing efforts in 1961 and received a charter the following year. Today, there are 38 local Leagues throughout New Jersey and the number is growing.

All local Leagues are part of, and led by the League of Women Voters of New Jersey, headquartered across from the State Capitol at 204 West State Street, Trenton, NJ 08608.


TThe League of Women Voters of Lawrence Township is part of a state and national nonpartisan organization open to women and men over age 16 from the New Jersey communities of Lawrenceville, Ewing, Trenton, and Hamilton.
