About

Founded in 1961, the LWV-AA is a non-partisan, grassroots organization serving the towns of Acton, Boxborough, Littleton, Maynard and Stow.

Mission

The League of Women Voters–Acton Area (LWV-AA) is a non-partisan, grassroots organization that supports and opposes issues, but not candidates or political parties. We educate citizens about issues by sponsoring candidate debates and public issue forums; conducting in-depth studies; and observing local town meetings, boards, and councils.

The League encourages informed active participation of citizens in local, county, state, and national governments, and registers eligible voters.

We take action on issues based on positions adopted by the League of Women Voters on all levels—national, state, and local.
