Making Democracy Work

Democracy is NOT a Spectator Sport!

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active civic participation in government by (1) providing services to voters and (2) taking action on certain public policy issues. Positions on issues are taken only after study and subsequent consensus of the members.

Welcome to the Juneau League of Women Voters (LWV).

We hope our website will help you better understand the League and your government. We focus on selected policy issues and on encouraging effective government by and for the people. In an era of proliferating and powerful special interests, the League has earned a reputation as a respected and effective participant in the US political process at national, state, and local levels.

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.
