Community Involvement & Service

The LWV plays a vital role in educating the community about the election process. We host candidate forums, from the national presidential forum to our local school and park boards.

Many of our members are voter registrars, helping citizens register to vote.

Our studies lead to action - such as our three-year study of the needs of the Elmhurst Public Library that led to the Elmhurst League's support for, and the community's subsequent passage of the referendum to build and equip the new library.
