Making Democracy Work

Volunteer with the League

The League of Women Voters is where hands-on work to safeguard democracy leads to civic improvement.

Here's how to get involved ....

Volunteer Advocacy

The LWVME Lobby Corps is an all-volunteer effort. Even if you can only spare an hour or two a month you can be a valuable member of our team! Most of this work can be done from your home or office.

Here are the issues we're following:

  • Clean Elections & Campaign Finance Reform
  • Voting Rights & Elections, including Ranked Choice Voting and Early Voting
  • Ethics & Disclosure

If you're interested in helping us track one or more of these issues, volunteer for the Lobby Corps! Learn more. Call or e-mail for more information: or call 622-0256.

New Citizens

The Portland Area League has an ongoing program to welcome and pass out voter registration cards at naturalization ceremonies for new citizens. This is a year-round project, with events in Portland and Bangor; and we need more volunteers. Read all about it here. If you are interested, please contact us at It is among the most satisfying work any League member can ever do.
