About LWV Minnesota

The League of Women Voters Minnesota is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization committed to civic engagement. Membership is open to all genders ages 16 and up.

Through our partnership with LWV United States, our State LWVs, and other community organizations, we encourage informed and active participation in government, register and inform voters, work to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influence public policy through education and advocacy. All of our work is done with an equity and inclusion lens, to ensure that all people have a voice and are represented in our democracy.


Our History

League of Women Voters Minnesota was incorporated on October 29, 1919, shortly after the Minnesota Legislature ratified the 19th Amendment on September 8, 1919: “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”

Full suffrage for all women in the United States was finally achieved on August 26, 1920, after decades of organizing, protesting, legislative initiatives and great persistence.
