The League of Women Voters of Massachusetts (LWVMA) is a non-profit, non-partisan civic organization that seeks to educate, empower, and advocate for all Massachusetts residents. The League is a trusted source of unbiased election information and civic education. We do not support or oppose candidates. We advocate for positions on public policy issues only after careful study by our grassroots membership.
Founded in 1920, LWVMA has approximately 3,000 members—both men and women—all across the state and in 46 local Leagues. Massachusetts League activities are coordinated by two distinct but complementary organizations. The League of Women Voters of Massachusetts is the political advocacy and membership organization. The League of Women Voters of Massachusetts Citizen Education Fund is the citizen education and voter service organization.
