Learn the story of the League of Women Voters, a long, rich history that is intricately woven into the fabric of America. Our nation’s history is full of people who dreamed big and acted on their beliefs. Americans speak out, agitate for change, organize and stand up for what they believe in. In their souls, Americans are activists. And at the center of activism in the U.S. is the League of Women Voters.

Like our country, the League has changed with the times and met new challenges head on. At its’ core, the League of Women voters is about citizenship and the responsibilities that come with democracy. It’s not enough just to have rights. Being a citizen requires participation and the League continues to lead the way in voting rights, ethical government and environmental issues. 

Since it was founded on February 14, 1920, the League of Women Voters has been a nonpartisan, activist, grassroots organization whose leaders believed that citizens should play a critical role in advocacy. Times have changed, political administrations have come and gone, and League members cycled through the ranks, but we continue to work for the core values have made the League a trusted voice in American democracy. We still register voters, testify on voting rights issues, monitor government function and debate issues important to society.

REALLY DOES
Make a Difference

Kitsap County has had numerous elections decided by as little as a handful of votes dating to the mid-1990s. Since then, we have had six races decided by one vote, and two races were dead heats decided by a simple coin toss. Lower turnout and close elections mean that each vote carries greater importance, particularly for our local election measures and contests.
