The League of Women Voters was formed in 1920 in response to the 19th Amendment which gave women the right to vote. The suffragettes who championed this right wanted women to enter the voting booth knowledgeable about candidates and issues so they could cast an intelligent vote. After the ratification of the 19th Amendment, suffragettes formed the League of Women Voters so the could use their vote to impact policies on government, social and environmental issues.
The mission of the LWV of the Lima Area is to provide nonpartisan voter education to our members and the community.
The LWV never supports or opposes candidates, but we do take action issues after we have studied the issue and reached concensus.
Leagues all over the state study issues and reach support. Leagues can only take action (lobby for) issues that are supported. Click here for ACTION ALERTS.
The League of Women Voters does not support or oppose candidates or political parties. Our goal is to give people the information they need to make up their own minds. Click here for more.

FAIR DISTRICTS = FAIR ELECTIONS
After years of hard work by the League of Women Voters and other groups, fair districts is a reality in the state of Ohio both at the state level and the national level. Voters passed a congressional reform issue in 2017 for the state legislature and in 2018 for US Congress. New maps will be drawn after the 2020 census. Thank you for your vote for fair districts. The LWV will continue to be a "watchdog" as the new maps are drawn.
