The League of Women Voters of the District of Columbia works to encourage the informed and active participation of the people of DC in government.
We are committed to increasing the understanding of major public policy issues and influencing public policy through education and advocacy. We do not support any candidate or party.
What We Do
Educate & Engage Voters
Voting is the core of our democracy. We work all year, every year, to empower eligible voters to participate in our political system.
Issues & Updates

Looking for ways to make a difference?
Even as our hard work may seem like slow going, across the arc of our country’s history, we’ve sailed past so many milestones.
