About Us

The League of Women Voters, founded as an outgrowth of the women’s suffrage movement and the passage of the 19th Amendment that granted women the right to vote, continues today as one of our country’s oldest and strongest nonpartisan citizens’ organizations.  As the League approaches its 100th birthday, its commitment remains the same: to empower all eligible voters to register, vote and engage in the hands-on improvement of their local, state, and national government.

Membership in the LWV Montgomery County carries with it membership in the LWV-US and the LWV-MD, all of which share the same 1920 birthday and the same goals for citizen involvement and good government.  Learn more about the League of Women Voters’ Mission and about our local League’s activities in our newsletter, Newsletter: Montgomery Voter.
