How We Impact the Community

Formed 103 years ago, the national League of Women Voters (LWV) has over 750 state and local League members. The grassroots nonprofit believes the freedom to vote is a nonpartisan right that needs to be protected and encouraged. It promotes informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major social issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Locally, LWV of Napa County makes democracy work by educating voters, providing nonpartisan election information, and advocating for important community issues, often partnering with coalitions or other nonprofits. During election years, holds nonpartisan and unbiased bilingual candidate forums and pro/con programs on ballot propositions. Volunteers disseminate free resources throughout the community to educate voters and register people to vote, including high school/college students, seniors, and new citizens.


I support the League of Women Voters as a board member because it promotes open elections, equal representation for members of all communities, and reliable information to help voters make their own informed choices.
