Ways to Get Active

The League of Women Voters has encouraged informed and active citizen participation in government for over 100 years. We'd love to have you join us in our work.


The League offers many opportunities to support its mission to encourage informed and active participation in government. Volunteers work to increase understanding of major public policy issues and to influence public policy through education and advocacy.

Volunteers help:

  • Organize candidate forums
  • Work on our monthly educational programs about current public policy issues
  • Research and draft educational material about ballot measures
  • Participate with our Communications group to publicize information about League's activities and efforts
  • Register voters and help get out the vote with our Voter Services Team

Membership brings additional volunteer opportunities to:

  • Speak about voting and/or what's on the ballot with our Speakers Bureau
  • Lead our Ballots & Baristas Community Conversations
  • Serve on our Board

Serve on a Committee or Join a Team

If you have an active interest in a particular issue, you might decide to volunteer on a committee. It's a great opportunity to meet and talk to community leaders, stakeholder organizations, and experts where you can have a direct impact on local issues that affect you. Our current committees and teams include:

Join a Unit

Units are small groups of League members who meet to discuss the current monthly forum or other topical issues. Units help organize and connect members to League outreach activities. They are a wonderful place to build lifelong friendships. Meetings are currently all online for safety, and members attend the unit meeting(s) that best fits their schedule.

  • Look here to learn more about Units, see the schedule of meetings, and join a Unit today!

Attend a Forum

Forums are free, open to the public and serve to educate members of the community at large about specific issues the League is suited to address. Find more information about our forums here and visit our event calendar to see what's happening this month!

Become an Observer

Members of our Observer Corps volunteer to attend public meetings and report back on the business of government groups. Our Observers:

  • Make sure the government is following open meeting ("sunshine") laws;
  • Promote transparency and accountability in government through regular oversight;
  • Educate the public about what is going on in government; and
  • Identify issues for League advocacy.

Speak Up!


The LWV of New Jersey has shared training on how to write an effective letter to the editor. You already know that letters to the editor can shift public debate, exert pressure on public officials, and shape future media coverage – now you can learn how to write to have the greatest impact. Speak up, have your say, and make a difference!

See a video of the training here, and the slides here
