The League of Women Voters Falls Church is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
What does the League do?
We educate citizens about issues, legislation and candidates. We encourage individual participation in the political process. We inform through in-depth, objective study. We monitor local, state and national government bodies and activities. We register voters. We sponsor candidate forums and public issue forums.
"I stand with the League to ensure that elections are always free, fair and accessible. I will work with the League to stop voter suppression tactics that threaten our democracy and the right to vote."
Receive updates from the League and hold your elected officials accountable by taking action on the League's key voting rights and other priorities.
We are working to make a difference and actively engaging people in more than 700 communities. Sign up to volunteer!
Your support makes it possible for LWV to take a stand in statehouses and courtrooms across the country.
5. Spread the Word
Learn about local issues and hear from elected officials. You can connect and organize with people already active in your community. Check your local government's website or contact your local League.
Make sure your family and neighbors are up to date on their registration. The League works year-round at schools and community events to prepare eligible voters. Check out VOTE411.org for more information.
Elected officials work for the people and need to hear from concerned citizens like you.
You can directly contribute to the direction of local politics in your own back yard. From school board to the state house, there are many opportunities to run for office and make a difference.
Newspapers print concerns from readers and love to hear about local concerns. Tailor the issue for your community and support local newspapers when possible.
