Who We Are

LWVJoCo serves Johnson County, Kansas, a part of the greater Kansas City metro area. We are a community-based organization focused on engaging citizens in the voting process. The League does not endorse or oppose candidates or political parties.

We believe hands-on work safeguards democracy, which leads to civic improvement. Members gain knowledge and experience, discover new interests through the study and discussion of timely issues and topics. Through participation in League activities, members contribute valuable services to the community.
