Informed political action is what the League of Women Voters of Greater Birmingham is all about. Whether it's voter information and registration, monitoring meetings, presenting candidate debates or forums for the discussion of important issues, the League of Women Voters is there. First to study and then to take informed action.

Through our study we try to make complex issues understandable. Then, armed with the knowledge of issues, we work for change.

The League is nonpartisan; it neither supports nor opposes any political party or candidate.

Join us! Make Birmingham and America work better. Membership is open to everyone. Here is a form which you can use to mail in your membership!

Here is what people in Birmingham and around the state of Alabama are saying about us:


"The League of Women Voters does what no other organization does. It informs people about national, state and local issues. An informed electorate is the strength of a democratic society, and the League ensures that flow of information."

"Knowledge is growing with swift speed and the public is inundated with complex information about pertinent issues. Sorting it all out is a challenge.

The League of Women Voters is exemplary in providing a public forum where ideas are debated, issues are clarified and recommendations for community betterment are formulated."

"There is much to be said about the importance of getting ignobled and making a difference in one's community. There is even more to be done. It is time to go beyond the 'talking phase', the 'wait and see routine' and the 'complain syndrome' that many of us experience from time to time.

The League of Women Voters offers a valualble service and vital information that helps individuals back words of concern and frustration with strong action. Through their efforts, many citizens have learned the importance of involvement, which is the key to continued progress in our community."

"The League of Women Voters plays an important role in the democratic process, energizing and educating voters by providing them with the information they need on election day. In an age where so many view what happens at the polls in solely partisan terms, the work of the League in battling voter apathy is a refreshing and important commitment to democracy."

"Thirty years of League membership not only has kept me informed and abreast of local, state, and national issues, but has given me the opportunity to join with others in working for the good of our community, state and nation."
