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.

Join Saginaw County Treasurer Marv Hare for a presentation about

redistricting in Saginaw County. Some special Department of Justice rules apply to Saginaw County, and Mr. Hare is the County official with the most experience with the process.

Every ten years redistricting changes the face of the American political landscape on the local, state and national level. Saginaw County is no exception…and this year the process might be more controversial because of proposals to reduce the number of County Commission districts.

Thursday, March 31

11:30 a.m.

Butman-Fish Library

Lunch will be served.

Please RSVP by Thursday, March 24 by calling 989-791-3889 or emailing lwvsaginaw@yahoo.com

Participants are invited to stay for an afternoon showing of the film Gerrymandering. Its purpose is to make its complicated subject — electoral redistricting — a political hot topic. Written and directed by Jeff Reichert, it examines the legal chicanery by which electoral districts are modified for political purposes.

Co-sponsored by the Saginaw County League Women Voters and the Saginaw Branch NAACP
