The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan community organization of men and women which works to promote informed and active participation in government. Our Lavaca County League joins more than 30 local Leagues in Texas and 700 other local and state-level Leagues in the United States in empowering voters and defending democracy in their home communities.
We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge and the confidence to participate.
We believe in the power of women to create a more perfect democracy.
We believe in respect for individuals, the value of diversity, and the empowerment of the grassroots, both within the League and in our community.
