The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. The national League was founded in Chicago in 1920 just six months before the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which allowed women to vote. The Freeport League, one of the oldest in the country, was established in 1923. To join the Freeport League of Women Voters, contact Julie Wenzel at 815-271-1681 or juljones@aeroinc.net.
