90th Anniversary Celebration
Information table at our 90th year celebration
The League of Women Voters of Greater Pittsburgh, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

The success of Democracy doesn't depend on a few persons who do great things, but on many persons who do small things faithfully.

-- Maud Wood Park, First LWVUS President

The LWVGP Voter Guide for the May 16 primary election is available here. Information for a candidate for City Council, District 4, accidentally omitted from the Voters Guide is here. Thanks to the New Pittsburgh Courier for formatting the guide and publishing it in print in their May 3, 2017 edition.

Had enough of gerrymandering? LWVPA is leading Fair Districts PA. Voters should choose their legislators. Legislators should not choose their voters. You can help to create a fairer way of drawing Congressional and Legislative districts in Pennsylvania.
