  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, the Independent Redistricting Commission, Voter Protection for all, an strong Citizens' Initiative and Referendum process and Support of Public Education and Education Funding. The League of Women Voters 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.
