Voting and Citizen Involvement
Voting is a fundamental right and all eligible voters should have an equal opportunity to exercise that right. The League of Women Voters is dedicated to ensuring that our elections remain free, fair and accessible.
For over 100 years, the League has worked to educate voters and to encourage involvement in the political process. This is a national non-partisan organization that never supports or opposes candidates or political parties. The League in the Lansing Area--Clinton, Eaton and Ingham Counties--carries out that work through:
Voter registration drives at schools and other public events
VOTE411, the League’s electronic voter guide with information on candidates and issues
Publication and distribution of the printed voter guide
Candidate forums for races where there are several candidates
Public information for voters about voting processes and citizen involvement
This work is carried out by many League volunteers. If you’re interested in working on any of these efforts, contact Joanne Winkelman.
