Welcome to the website of the League of Women Voters of Arizona. We hope your visit will help you better understand the League of Women Voters and your government. Our focus is on current and relevant issues and on encouraging informed and active participation of individuals in government.
This has earned the League of Women Voters its reputation as a respected and effective participant in the American political process in an era of proliferating and powerful special interests. The League’s advocacy in the public interest is increasingly recognized as an essential voice of democracy. Please join us in our mission of Making Democracy Work for all.
The League of Women Voters of Arizona has outstanding members who work collaboratively and collectively to create informative papers that serve to inform our members, Arizonans, the Press, and all others interested in having informative reports on topics relevant to LWVAZ priorities.
The League of Women Voters takes action on an issue or advocates for a cause when there is an existing League position that supports the issue or speaks to the cause.

Welcome to our website. Members of the League of Women Voters of Arizona are women and men living in communities across the state. The members engage in hands-on work to safeguard democracy and improve our communities. The League of Women Voters is people-powered democracy in action. We not only promote the values of democracy, we embody them.
The League is the original and preeminent grassroots community network, directed by our members and committed to engaging people in our democracy so that it works for all Americans. Strictly nonpartisan, the League is at the same time political and works to influence policy through education and advocacy.
On February 14, 2014. the League celebrated the 94th birthday of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the League of Women Voters.
Since our founding in 1920, promoting the right of every citizen to vote has been a principle of the League. The state and local Leagues sponsor debates and forums to educate voters about where candidates stand on important issues. We register voters, offer them information about issues and promote voter turnout.
LWVAZ has championed the Clean Elections Act and the Independent Redistricting Commission. In 2011, the new Redistricting Commission was chosen and they drew the new federal and state districts which were used for the 2012 election.
The League does not endorse political parties or candidates, but does take stand on issues. Members lobby state legislators and Members of Congress on priority issues.
Please explore the websites for the LWVUS, LWVAZ and local Leagues to find out what is happening in Arizona. Please join us in our efforts to make democracy work.
