Voting is what brings us together as Americans.

The vote of the poorest citizen is equal to the vote of the wealthiest citizen. Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy and should be a moment at which we are all equal.  We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge and the confidence to participate.

The League of Women Voters was founded in 1920 – just six months before the 19th Amendment was passed and ratified. Our mission at the time was to help 20 million women carry out their new responsibilities as voters. Ninety-seven years later, we are still fighting for equal access at the ballot box — and an alarming trend threatens to roll back what we’ve achieved across the last century. That’s why the work of the League of Women Voters continues, and that’s why Americans everywhere must remain vigilant in protecting their role in our democracy.

Today, we are still committed to helping voters make informed decisions and fighting to make sure our elections remain as free, fair and transparent as possible.
