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.
