The National Capital Area

The National Capital Area

The League of Women Voters of the National Capital Area [LWVNCA] is an Inter League Organization (ILO). It is comprised of the District of Columbia League and those Leagues in Maryland and Virginia surrounding the nation's capital. Once you join one of the local Leagues in the LWVNCA region, you become a member of the local and state Leagues and of the LWV of the United States.

We are a nonpartisan, political, membership organization that encourages informed and active participation in government. The League influences public policy through education and advocacy at all levels of government.

The purpose of LWVNCA is to promote political responsibility through informed and active participation in government, and to act on selected governmental issues of a metropolitan, regional or interjurisdictional nature such as energy, water and transportation.

Join us in creating a more perfect democracy!
