Our Mission


Empowering Voters.

Defending Democracy.

The League of Women Voters of Maine is a public policy organization. As a non-profit, non-partisan organization, the League does not support or oppose candidates or political parties. Membership is open to anyone 16 years of age or older.

What We Do


In 2020, we're going to increase voter turnout by working with marginalized communities, especially young people, immigrants and low-income workers. We will register students and new citizens to vote, canvass through our Neighbor-to-Neighbor program, and publish a non-partisan voter guide that reaches 100,000 Mainers.

The Downeast Chapter of the League of Women Voters, in cooperation with WERU FM, produces a monthly radio program on topics in participatory democracy called the Democracy Forum. Broadcasts may be heard from 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM on the third Friday of the month at WERU Community Radio, 89.9 FM.

We will continue to fight for election security, meaningful choices, and representation that isn't distorted by big money. We will push for a ban on corporate contributions to candidates so that they represent voters, not donors. We will continue to advocate for Maine to join the national popular vote compact because every vote for a presidential candidate matters.
