Making Democracy Work

About the League

What is our mission? How are we structured? What is our history?

Our Mission and Roles

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization. Our mission and vision is to Empower Voters and Defend Democracy. We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge and the confidence to participate. We do not support or oppose any political party or candidate.

The League of Women Voters has two distinct roles.

  • Voters Service/Citizen Education: we present nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process, and issues.

  • Action/Advocacy: we are also nonpartisan, but, after study of the issue and member agreement, we use our positions to advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest.

To conduct our voter service and citizen education activities, we use funds from the League of Women Voters of Arizona Education Fund, which is a 501(c)(3) corporation, a nonprofit educational organization. The League of Women Voters, a membership organization, conducts action and advocacy and is a nonprofit 501(c)(4) corporation.

Our Vision, Beliefs, and Intentions guide our activities.
