About the LeagueAbout LWVLC, giving Lane County, Oregon citizens a voice.
Together, we:

To be clear, the League:

  • Does not support or oppose any political party or candidate.
  • Is a nonpartisan political organization promoting informed and active participation in government.

The Lane County League has over 180 men and women striving to make school districts, utilities, county government and the Oregon Legislature function more effectively to benefit all of us. The Lane County League is part of LWVOR (Oregon) and LWVUS, the national League.

The League of Women Voters is for MEN also. The 1973 LWVUS convention admitted male members. Oregon’s Norman Turrill is the first LWVUS and LWVUS Education Fund male board member.

Some members read and discuss isues. Others join studies or work on Voter Service. Some follow their advocacy passion- like Clean Air, Mental Health, Voting Rights. Some join to support the League and contribute $ to fund our diverse activities.
