About The League of

Women Voters

We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge and the confidence to participate. We believe in the power of women to create a more perfect democracy.


The League is proud to be nonpartisan, neither supporting nor opposing candidates or political parties at any level of government, but always working on vital issues of concern to members and the public.

The League of Women Voters of Ozaukee County encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
