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.
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization. The LWV encourages informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles.
- Voters Service/Citizen Education: we present unbiased nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process, and issues, and we organize candidate forums. We never support or oppose any political party or candidate.
- Action/Advocacy: While the League is nonpartisan, we use our Program Positions (see below) to advocate for or against particular policies and legislative proposals.

League Supports Children's Health Care
Congress has not yet restored funding to the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which is Medicaid for low-income children and pregnant women. Federal funds are administered by the states. In Colorado the program is called CHP+ - read more here
In Boulder County the end of CHP+ would mean an estimated 3,500 low-income children and pregnant women would lose their access to basic health care, according to the Boulder Weekly.
Please contact your U.S. Senators and Representatives to support continued CHIP funding CONTACT INFORMATION IS HERE
The League believes health care is a human right.
And CHP+ is good fiscal policy: healthier children become more productive adults who contribute to the economy.
League Supports the Dream Act
We affirm our national LWV position on immigration, which supports policies that provide an efficient pathway to citizenship for immigrants, and opposes deporting unauthorized immigrants who have no history of criminal activity.
Read our president's letter in full in English or in Spanish.
To DACA youth: We see you, and we support you. You belong here.
Our organization is a member of CIRC, the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition. Read more about CIRC here.
Hunger and Democracy
• Poverty and food insecurity impair citizen participation
• Responding to expensive corporate lobbying, the U.S. Congress subsidizes the processed food industry, not fruit & veggies and other healthy food -
