Making Democracy Work

Because Democracy Is Not A Spectator Sport

The League of Women Voters of Detroit is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government. The League does not endorse candidates or political parties. It influences public policy through education and advocacy. We invite you to join us as we make democracy work in our communities.

The LWV of Detroit
LWV of Detroit

The LWV of Detroit is open to new members who share our ideals. Our League registers new voters, educates voters on upcoming elections and advocates for local issues. We work to engage Detroit, Hamtramck, and Highland Park citizens in local governance, decision-making, and issues of interest.

Announcing Our New League Office

LWV of Detroit is proud to announce the opening of our new League Office in the City of Detroit City Clerk Office for the Department of Elections (2978 W. Grand Blvd, Detroit, MI 48202).

Our new office is on the 4th floor. The front desk security guard has a list of Detroit League Board members, who will host meetings and maintain informational materials at the site. Additionally, our new office allows us to collaborate with Department of Elections staff and the Detroit community during mutual events.

Thank you Detroit City Clerk Janice Winfrey and staff for being so welcoming and generous!

It's Official!
