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, 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.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: It’s that time of year when membership dues should be renewed. You can do this online or you can renew by mail. Your membership dues are essential for your LWV to be able to do its important work. Questions about your membership status? Contact Membership Chair, Marianne Mills at 723-0226.

You can now BUY TICKETS to our Annual Fundraiser online using PayPal.

Our Work

Voter Registration

We register voters at community events such as festivals, parades, malls, and other venues such as the local high schools and UAS. We work with the following collaborative partners to ensure that all citizens have the ability to vote:

Juneau Votes – Public Libraries – Juneau Empire – Tlingit-Haida – Radio – Civic Organizations – Schools

Voter Education

Voter Education is key to ensuring that democracy works for all of us.  There are many ways in which we work to ensure our citizens understand how our government works, and how to have their voices hear.  Some of the ways we do this are by:

Candidate Forums and Debates – Capitol Visits for 8th Graders – Classroom Teaching – Civics Quiz at Venues – “How to Run for Office” Workshop and many others.  

Voter Participation

There are many ways we help with voter participation.   We define and set local policy statements, advocate for these positions within the legislature and local government, and helping to enable citizen participation in local and state governments.

Working at polling places – Participating in Hand counts and verifications – Defining programs for local actions – and many others.
