I know I can always count on the League for trustworthy and unbiased election information that is so hard to find anywhere else. The League is truly dedicated to providing that information to everyone -- in multiple formats and languages -- so that we can all vote with confidence. The quality of their election materials is also top-notch because of the League's thorough review process. I'd recommend League products like the Easy Voter Guide to anyone trying to decide how to vote!

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.
