EDUCATE. ADVOCATE. EMPOWER.
A trusted community leader since 1920.
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
Jackson County has long played an active role in the work of the League of Women Voters over most of the last 100 years. In 2015 our local League was reborn with the support of President of the state League of Women Voters along with the mentoring of the Lansing League’s co-Presidents.
