The purpose of the League of Women Voters (LWV) is to promote political responsibility through informed and active participation of citizens in government and to act on selected governmental issues.
We influence public policy through education and advocacy. We never support or oppose any political party or candidate. We develop positions which support our mission. Our major focus areas are: Voter services, citizen education, advocacy and action!
We hope you find the information on this website useful, and (if you are not already an LWV member) will consider joining our organization. Note that our members are automatically members of the League of Women Voters of Alaska (LWVAK), and of the League of Women Voters of the United States (LWVUS). Maintaining an effectively functioning democracy is hard work at all levels of government and we can always use more help.
Please consider volunteering! As this is a critical election year, we are hoping that many of you will find an hour or two in the next 5-7 months to help us in our “get out the vote” efforts. We’ll be focusing on the late summer/fall timeframe in order to help Juneau understand the issues, the candidates, and to help us “Defend Democracy.” If any of you wish to volunteer to work with the board, sit at a registration table, bring food to an event, write an article, tweet or Facebook post, please let us know.
