I'm very happy and proud to be a board member of this wonderful organization. The League provides outstanding information to voters at each election. It is working to increase participation in civic life overall -- which includes but is not limited to voting. Our goal is to make the voices in California's civic life representative of the population, and we're making good progress.

I grew up with the League. My mother was an active League member, and I was her helper. She gave me my first membership, and I have maintained that wherever I've moved. The League provides an immediate connection to people who care about -- and are active in -- their community. As a volunteer, I have have learned great skills -- research, writing, public speaking, fundraising -- and done it while providing a service to my community.

I have been an active volunteer with the League of Women Voters at all levels. I am particularly impressed by the outstanding work done in California to serve voters. The League provides high quality information. This information is accessible to a wide variety of Californians -- in different languages, via a wide variety of media, and in communities throughout the state.

I shifted from general volunteer to board member because the work of LWVCEF is so exciting! The new Voters Edge website is exactly the kind of project that voters need to make informed decisions about candidates and issues. The League's profound commitment to nonpartisanship is like a breath of fresh air in politics. This is a group of people with strong and informed opinions who regularly put them aside to focus on what's best for democracy - I know that sounds corny but in the current political environment it's stunning.

This is an organization full of staff and volunteers who are deeply committed to honest, impartial, straight-forward information for voters. I've been volunteering on a committee for a few months now, and I'm so impressed by the dedication to democracy that drives these *incredibly* smart and talented women (and a few men). Democracy isn't just a concept to them - it's a vital activity, and they work really hard to carve out and defend voters' access to useful information that is free from corporate and partisan influence. The CaVotes.org website is a fantastic, high quality, easily accessible resource for voters in California. Possibly the most valuable resource the League offers during elections is their focus on local democracy, local issue information, and voter registration. They make being a well-informed voter much easier! Also, you know that when the League takes a position on something, it's completely trust-worthy, well-researched, and carefully thought out - you don't have to go looking for who funded their opinion.

I have been active in the League of Women Voters at both the state and local level and no other activity I have been involved in has given me as many personal rewards. I get enormous satisfaction from helping others learn more about candidates and understand the issues on the ballot. I enjoy the research/writing and training involved in voter education.
