Empowering Voters

Defending Democracy 

The League of Women Voters is a nationwide nonpartisan political organization that neither supports nor opposes candidates or political parties.

We are women and men of all ages and backgrounds who encourage informed and active participation in government, promote civic education, work to increase understanding of major public policy issues and influence public policy through education and advocacy on issues we have studied. 

Our Williamsburg League has been educating and empowering voters and studying issues since 1962.

Getting Involved with the League

Join us in making a better community through informed voting.

Our Voter Services Team 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 Civic Education Team works with local educators to strengthen the K-12 programs in the Williamsburg-James City school system.

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