The League of Women Voters of Maryland (LWVMD) conducts voter service and citizen education activities and supports the efforts of local Leagues to empower voters and defend democracy.
LWVMD is a nonpartisan nonprofit public policy educational organization that:
- builds citizen participation in the democratic process through voter registration events, civic education programs, public forums during primary and general elections, and other community activities;
- empowers voters during primary and general elections by hosting public candidate forums and producing nonpartisan voter guides, which can be found on www.VOTE411.org in in print form in your local community;
- studies key community issues at all government levels in an unbiased manner; and
- enables people to seek positive solutions to public policy issues through education and civil discourse.
Looking to get involved in the Leagues’ efforts?
The Civic Education & Youth Engagement Committee supports ongoing Local League projects and help develop new initiatives in communities across Maryland. Join us to discuss methods to increase the effectiveness of your voter registration efforts, empower students to become engaged citizens, and amplify the voices of young people and marginalized communities in our democratic processes.
Our efforts together help advance League positions, connect voters with our Voter Guides and Vote411, promote the value of civic engagement to strengthen our democracy, and grow League membership in our communities. All members of the League in Maryland are welcome.
The Committee meets quarterly (usually in March, June, September, and December) on Zoom to connect, collaborate, and problem solve together. Contact Genie Massey ([email protected]) to learn more.
