Voter Registration, Education and Engagement

Voter Registration, Education and Engagement

Since its inception in 1920, the League of Women Voters has worked to register, educate and engage voters.

The League of Women Voters of Florida (LWVFL) state and local Voter Service Action Groups are responsible for carrying out this vital work. Voter Service Action Groups are well known for nonpartisan Candidate and Issue Forums, Voter Guides and Voter Registration Drives.

Voter Registration

LWVFL is a certified Third Party Voter Registration Organization (3PVRO), authorized by the State of Florida Division of Elections to register Florida citizens to vote. Local League member volunteers complete comprehensive training to become certified voter registrars under the auspices of the LWVF.  Our consistent holistic approach, offering voter education hand-in-hand with our registration  services, is what sets the League apart as a recognized leader in this work.  Learn more about or get involved in your local League’s voter registration, education and engagement activities.
