100 years ago, the
19th Amendment guaranteed women across the country
the right to vote.
The League of Women Voters was immediately established to help women exercise that right
--and has been promoting and defending voting rights for
all citizens since.
The work continues.
Here's to the next 100 years!

Who We Are
The LWVSFC encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy
through education and advocacy
The LWVSFC is proud to be nonpartisan, neither supporting nor opposing candidates or political parties at any level of government, but always working on vital
issues of concern to members and the public.
The LWVSFC envisions a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge and the confidence to participate. We believe in the power of women - and our allies - to create a more perfect democracy.

What We Do
EVENTS & ACTIVITIES - The LWVSFC offers opportunities for our members and the public to attend forums, presentations and seminars to strengthen their understanding of local issues. The League is committed to presenting unbiased, accurate information so that individuals can decide where they stand based on facts, not outside influence.

VOTER SERVICES - The LWVSFC believes we are all equal at the ballot box, but only if we vote. We engage thousands of Santa Fe County residents every year - ensuring that they are registered to vote, and that they have the information they need to participate in the local, state and national elections that determine our future.
ACTION & ADVOCACY - The LWVSFC follows local issues and monitors the workings of local government to identify opportunities to advocate for a course of action. The A&A Committee works to influence public policy through education and advocacy, based on positions the League has adopted after extensive study - and a consensus of our members.
OUR POSITIONS - The LWVSFC advocates on the basis of positions that have been developed and adopted by the League of Women Voters of Santa Fe County; addressing local issues that affect City and County residents. We also advocate based on positions that have been adopted by the New Mexico State League (LWVNM), and the National League (LWVUS).
