Make a difference with LWVIA!
LWVIA members Jessie Hill and Janet Rampulia Boddicker - both redheads - enjoy the company of another redhead - former LWVUS president Elizabeth MacNamara - at LWVUS Convention 2014. LWVIA provided grants to many delegates from Iowa to the national convention as a means to offset expenses for Local Leagues and toward fostering leadership.
JOIN A LOCAL LEAGUE
Membership in the League of Women Voters, the most respected and effective grassroots organization in the country, is open to men and women of all ages. We encourage individuals to join local Leagues where you can attend local educational meetings, participate in local advocacy efforts, and help with voter registration drives. Membership dues in the local League includes membership in state and national League of Women Voters. Membership dues are not tax-deductible.

Volunteer for League
Local League volunteers provide many skills to help make League a vital part of the community. Registering voters is a critical component for Local Leagues who register hundreds of new voters annually. Here, League of Women Voters of Johnson County member Syndy Conger registers voters at the 2014 Johnson County Fair.

Donate to League
Legislative forums and educational meetings run by Leagues tend to be well attended due to the stellar reputation of League for being nonpartisan, politically civil, and fact-based. Your donation can offset the costs incurred for organizing, publicizing, and running these meetings. Here, the Ames League holds a candidate forum for state legislative offices.
