Mission: The League of Women Voters of California Education Fund provides the public with information and educational services on elections and on current public policy issues. The League is known for its ability to make complex and controversial issues accessible in a balanced, evenhanded way. The League is an experienced trainer of community leaders and activists. A major focus of the League''s educational work is on voting and elections. The Leagues in communities throughout the state provide voters with factual, nonpartisan information on candidates and ballot issues, through voter guides, Web-based information, forums, town meetings and debates with a number of community, government and business partners.
Programs: We convene a number of forums, where each speaker has an equal opportunity to address the public and to answer their questions. These forums are about elected offices, ballot measures, legislation, social policy, and other community concerns. We produce education tools and training programs to encourage civic participation in these issues. Current priority issues include redistricting implementation and government reform; we also have information on health care, education, the state budget, climate change, water, transportation, and other issues.

I highly recommend The League of Women Voters of California Education Fund because of their commitment to providing nonpartisan resources for all voters in California. I have been a member of the League for almost seven years and I rely on their voter education materials for every election for myself and to share with my community.

As a new voter they can help you register and vote using many multilingual videos and materials at www.easyvoterguide.org and www.cavotes.org. The LWVCEF also offers the popular www.smartvoter.org which provides comprehensive information for every election including local elections with info on small but mighty races for school boards and judges. No other organization provides such trusted, nonpartisan information with attention to voters’ needs. The LWVCEF now offers the updated Guide to California Government to help new and seasoned voters understand how our government works at www.cavotes.org/G2CG.
