Voter Service

The League: Educating Michigan Voters

Educating voters is one of the two basic purposes of

the League of Women Voters at all three levels of the

organization.  It is carried out through the Voter

Services efforts listed below.

We have been busy making plans for the election season

of 2020.  Here is a list of opportunities that we'd like you

to consider participating in. The election of 2020 is going

to be incredibly important, and we want to involve as many League members as possible in these opportunities.

The Presidential Primary will be held on March 10th in Michigan. Can we count on you to help get people registered and to get out information about new voting rules?

Voter Information-The League provides important

information to help citizens understand the process

of voting, including updates in election laws. 2019

was the year for municipal elections and for some local ballot proposals.


Vote 411—This is the League’s on-line voter guide that provides personalized voter information.  Go to for the full slate of candidates and the wording on  all the ballot proposals put forward by local units of government.  (available in October 2020)

Voter Registration—The League registers eligible high school students each spring in high schools throughout the tri-county area.

Candidate Forums—These opportunities for voters to hear the views of candidates are provided prior to elections in even years and also in odd years when there is a larger candidate field.

Printed Voter Guides are distributed prior to major statewide elections.
