Empowering Voters. Defending Democracy.

UPDATE: Great Decisions canceled

The impact of COVID-19 is having a major effect on our national
and local institutions. Given the strong recommendations from our
health experts the Board of the Williamsburg League of Women
Voters and the Great Decision’s leadership team have reached the
decision to cancel our remaining Great Decision’s programs. We
do this with great reluctance, but recognize it is the responsible thing
to do.

We intend to provide our participants with the opportunity for substantive engagement with these topics after this crisis using the DVD/discussion format, which has been successful in the past.

The League of Women Voters is a nationwide nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government at all levels. We advocate in state and local government on issues we have studied, and promote civic education. Then, the Suffragists went to jail. Now, we go to the polls!

Our Williamsburg League has been educating voters and studying issues for over 50 years.

Getting Involved with the League

Join us in making a better community through informed voting.

The Voter Services group sponsors candidate forums, registers voters, publicizes elections, and answers voters’ questions about voting and elections. Members also regularly update the Facts for Voters publication.

Our Education Committee studies local education and lobbies local educators to strengthen the K-12 programs in the Williamsburg-James City school system.

Our Elections Integrity Committee monitors bills related to election security, photo ID, no excuse absentee voting and attends the monthly JCC Electoral Board Meetings.
