Welcome to the League of Women Voters of Evanston!
  
Who we are and what we do
The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan grassroots political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. The League of Women Voters is nonpartisan; it neither supports nor opposes candidates for office at any level of government. At the same time, the League is wholeheartedly political and works to influence policy through advocacy.
