Mission and Goals
The League of American Voters is a national non-partisan and 501(c)4 non-profit organization created to keep our elected officials in Washington and across the nation accountable. In past decades, Americans could rely on the media and political parties to serve as checks against the growth of government, corruption and incompetence. The League of American voters seeks to make the nation's democratic system stronger and more vibrant by demanding greater accountability from our officials.
The League has a broad mandate: To educate the American people on core issues. Among these core issues are defending America’s free enterprise system, supporting a strong national defense and security infrastructure, promoting common sense family values and championing the idea that good government is one that is both limited and honest.
The League is a national membership organization open to members of all political parties who share the group's mission.
The League seeks to further its goals by several means, including:
Contributions to the League of American Voters are not tax deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes.
Upon exiting the Constitutional Convention, Benjamin Franklin was asked by a woman, “What kind of government have you given us?”
Franklin responded with one of the most famous quotations in history.
“A Republic, if you can keep it.”
