The League of Women Voters of California is on the front lines fighting for voting rights in our state. Despite the growing influence of money in politics across the country, we’re making progress here in California.
Only 30% of eligible Californians voted in the November election. If this number alarms you, then join with the League of Women Voters of California to be a force for change. Let’s get more voters to the polls in 2016—our democracy depends on it!
Do you want strong leadership in California? When you make a gift to the League of Women Voters of California, you help us empower and train leaders in every area of our democracy—whether educating voters, advocating for transparency in government, or tackling the most challenging social and economic issues of the day.

Sacramento, CA - A new report issued August 18, 2014 by the California Voter Foundation (CVF) finds that the top three reasons why some ballots go uncounted in three counties studied are that they are received too late, lack the voter's signature, or the signature on the ballot envelope does not sufficiently compare to the one on file.
It is essential that the youth of today learn early on how to live in society. They must learn to speak up. They must learn to understand and appreciate the views of others. They must learn how to reach consensus and implement decisions. It is not enough for them to be lectured to; they must get hands-on experience. This is why youth civic learning for is so important to the League.
