Empowering Voters
Defending Democracy



The League of Women Voters® (LWV), a nonpartisan grassroots organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
LWV, formed over a century ago, was forged in the women's suffrage movement. It currently represents over 90,000 people across the country and operates at the local, state, and national level. The LWV of Albany County focuses on voter education and registration and on issues affecting our county, described in our current year Program.  We also support the issues and positions of LWVUS and LWVNYS.

The League is for anyone who wants to:

  • contribute valuable service to the community 
  • make informed decisions about how to vote 
  • participate in promoting an informed electorate 
  • have real input into laws and policies
  • gain knowledge and experience through study and discussion of timely and important topics 

What We Do

  • register voters and defend voting rights
  • distribute nonpartisan information on candidates and ballot issues
  • monitor government activities
  • conduct candidates debates and public issues forums
  • inform through in-depth and balanced issues analysis
  • study issues
  • take action, lobby, and testify on the issues you care about

The League does not work on behalf of candidates or political parties. We are a non-partisan organization.

The League registers voters, defends voting rights, monitors government activities, sponsors candidate debates and public issue forums, informs through our in-depth and balanced issues analysis, studies issues, takes action, lobbies, testifies on the issues you care about. We help put laws on the books. 

All League members are welcome at board meetings, which are held monthly.
Please check our calendar of events for more information or contact the Board.
