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.

ACTION ALERT: House Vote On Health Care Reform Imminent!

The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on historic health care reform legislation this weekend. Your Representative needs to hear from you right now!

Please contact your Representative immediately and ask him or her to support H.R. 3962, the Affordable Health Care for America Act!

Congress needs to pass comprehensive health care reform and the public option is a vital component. On Saturday, November 7, the House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on the Affordable Health Care for America Act, H.R. 3962. Congress needs to hear that Americans want real health care reform. Opponents of reform are concentrating on the public insurance option because they know it is the key to controlling costs and ensuring consumer choice.

Enter your zip code to encourage your Representative to support comprehensive health care reform legislation.

The League of Women Voters believes that Congress must pass H.R. 3962. The Affordable Health Care for America Act is strong health care reform legislation that guarantees quality, safe and affordable health care coverage, including the choice of a public insurance plan. Everyone deserves the choice of a government administered health insurance plan like Medicare that would compete with private health insurance plans. Our health care is too important to be left only to private insurance companies.

Members of Congress need to demonstrate real leadership and move forward by passing H.R. 3962, including the public option.

Take action today to encourage your Representative to support H.R. 3962, the Affordable Health Care for America Act!


1. Contact your Representative now, click here and enter your zip code. Tell him or her to support H.R. 3962, the Affordable Health Care for America Act with the public option. Emphasize that the public insurance option will guarantee consumer choice in health care while controlling costs.

2. Send this alert to other concerned citizens - your grassroots network, your friends, neighbors and coworkers. Encourage them to contact their Representative today!
