One of the primary goals of LWV is to ensure that all eligible Americans have access to the vote, have accurate information regarding candidates, and that the election process is free and fair.

What is Fair Redistricting?
Join us and take action to ensure that fair redistricting is a nationwide priority.
Why is Redistricting important? New district lines can be drawn to intentionally decrease voters' power based solely on their political party. We believe redistricting should be fair and transparent. Our program, People Powered Fair Maps™ advocates for redistricting processes that eliminate partisan and racial gerrymandering nationwide.

We envision a democracy where every person has

confidence to participate.
We believe in the power of women to create a
more perfect democracy.

working on vital issues of concern to members and

LWV Northern Portage County
As a subset of the National League and the Ohio League, the Northern Portage County League of Women Voters advocates within the communities of Aurora, Freedom, Garrettsville, Hiram, Mantua, Nelson and Shalersville.
Each local League develops and comes to a consensus on positions within its community with which it takes action. The action taken may be in several forms, including letter writing, testifying at pubic hearings, serving on committees and/or commissions, and lobbying at local, state, or national levels for legislation.
We are all equal at the ballot box,
