League of Women Voters

The League of Women Voters is a United States non-partisan political organization founded in 1920 by Carrie Chapman Catt during a meeting of the National American Woman Suffrage Association. It began as a "mighty political experiment" aimed to help newly enfranchised women exercise their responsibilities as voters. Though non-partisan, the League does take political positions. Recently, it supports campaign finance reform and electoral reform. The league puts out voters guides that compare candidates' positions on issues. The league also staffs precincts on election day helping to administer elections.
