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. 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 and important issues and topics. As you meet others who share your interests, you will make professional contacts and develop lasting friendships.  

Through participation in League activities, members contribute valuable services to the community. The League does not endorse or oppose candidates or political parties.

You can make a difference! Joining LWVJoCo also provides membership in the state and national LWV.
