About Us

The League of Women Voters is a peoples’ organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage all Americans in the decisions that impact their lives. We operate at national, state and local levels through more than 800 state and local Leagues, in all 50 states as well in DC, the Virgin Islands and Hong Kong. We never endorse or oppose political parties or candidates, but we are political.

Formed from the movement that secured the right to vote for women, the centerpiece of the League’s efforts remain to expand participation and give a voice to all Americans. We do this at all three levels of government, engaging in both broad educational efforts as well as advocacy. Our issues are grounded in our respected history of making democracy work for all Americans.


The Mid-Hudson chapter of the League of Women Voters serves Dutchess, Orange, and Ulster counties. We host and assist with voter registration drives, we provide information on voting to our new citizens at naturalization ceremonies, we moderate debates and candidate forums, we attend and observe legislative meetings, and we host information sessions on issues of relevance to the voting public. We are an active and lively group of civic-minded men and women.
