Welcome to the LWV
of Saginaw County

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, has fought since 1920 to improve our systems of government and impact public policies through citizen education and advocacy. The League's enduring vitality and resonance comes from its unique decentralized structure.

The League of Women Voters is strictly nonpartisan; it neither supports nor opposes candidates for office at any level of government. At the same time, the League is wholeheartedly political and works to influence policy through advocacy. It is the original grassroots citizen network, directed by the consensus of its members nationwide.


All of our meetings are open to the public. We welcome you to membership in the Saginaw League of Women Voters if you are a voting age citizen. Come to our meetings, eMail our president [address at the bottom of this page], or click the Join the League button on the right side of this page.

Global Democracy: Three Projects Receive Funding!

The League’s Global Democracy Program just received a two-year grant from the U.S. Department of State, Office of Citizen Exchanges, to connect future legislators with civil society organizations in Colombia and Brazil; financial support for technical assistance to the National Albanian American Council in Kosova; and funding from the Open World Leadership Center for two additional groups from Georgia and Azerbaijan to be hosted by the Leagues of Boulder (CO) and Baltimore County (MD). More information for League participation in the Colombia and Brazil project will be published in the next two weeks. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact Zaida Arguedas at zarguedas@lwv.org.
