Making Democracy Work

About the LWV of Alameda

Established in 1920, the League of Women Voters (LWV) is a national grassroots, nonpartisan, and nonprofit educational and political organization. Its members - both men and women - are committed to "making democracy work."

The League of Women Voters of Alameda (LWVA), established in 1978, is a member of The League of Women Voters of the United States (LWVUS) and the League of Women Voters of California.

The League of Women Voters of Alameda is a registered 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization (Tax ID 94-2650856).

Like its sister Leagues throughout the nation, the Alameda League's mission is to encourage the informed and active participation of citizens in government and to influence public policy through education and advocacy.

Our advocacy reflects the consensus of our members. At local, state, and national levels, selected League positions are adopted by consensus only after a thorough study and discussion of the issues.

The LWVA organizes many community events throughout the year, including public forums on elections and other issues of interest to Alameda. The public is invited to attend our meetings. Please check our calendar of events for the schedule and locations.

The LWVA offers several voter education and election services, including voter registration campaigns, voter education materials, such as Pros & Cons presentations of state and local ballot measures.

The League of Women Voters of Alameda also assists with mock elections in the schools, provides speakers to local groups, and sponsors candidate forums.

We invite you to join in our efforts to "make democracy work."
