The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization Encouraging informed and active participation in government.

About the League

The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles:

  • Voters Service/Citizen Education: we present unbiased nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process, and issues.

  • Action/Advocacy: we are also nonpartisan, but, after study, we use our positions to advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest.

We never support or oppose any political party or candidate. 

Serving the people of Manistee, Onekama, Bear Lake, Arcadia, Stronach, Filer City, Wellston, Brethren, Copemish

To conduct our voter services and citizen education activities, we use funds from the League of Women Voters Education Fund, which is a 501(c)(3) corporation, a nonprofit educational organization.  The League of Women Voters, a membership organization, conducts action and advocacy and is a nonprofit 501(c)(4) corporation. 

“Because democracy is not a spectator sport.”


Membership in the League of Women Voters, the most respected and effective grassroots organization in the country, is open to men and women of all ages.

Our members make a visible difference by serving as community leaders using their experience to create positive, lasting change in our communities.
