Empowering Voters Defending Democracy


The League does not take a position on an issue without careful study at the local, state and national levels. We pride ourselves in investing the time to dig deep and find the facts that will make our members informed about the issues. The League of Women Voters is respected for its commitment to in-depth research, community involvement and its 100 year history of educating voters.


The LWVNE conducts studies to better understand issues. Studies are the first step in the process of the League taking a position on issues, providing guidance and education.
