How We Work

The League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Tulsa is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

We Study Issues

League members meet in small groups, called units, to research and study local, regional, state and national issues affecting the public interest including impediments to voting, policies or laws that may harm the environment, access to health care and education. The League frequently works in coalition with other community groups.

We Take Stands

The League takes positions on public policy issues. Those positions provide a foundation for speaking out and for taking action.

We Speak Out and Take Action

The League trains leaders to lobby for passage of laws we support and for the defeat of those we oppose, and to speak out at legislative meetings and hearings. When necessary, the League will sue to help clarify and enforce policy in the public interest.

We Help Voters be Prepared to Vote

The League produces online and printed Voters Guides and the Directory of Government Officials before all major elections.

We Register Voters

The League sets up registration booths at events such as citizen naturalization ceremonies, community events and in local high schools, among other places. Download a voter registration form.

We Keep Democracy Strong by Keeping Citizens Involved

The League does not support any political party or candidate.
