After winning the right to vote for women, the League of Women Voters was established as a grassroots organization in 1920.
Fifty-five women organized the League of Women Voters of McLean County in 1933 under the leadership of Florence Fifer Bohre, first women elected to the Illinois State Senate. From the beginning, the League has been an integral part of the political and civic life of our community. Within four months of it's founding, the League held its first event to meet the candidates for elective offices.
We continue to help everyone be an informed voter so that our elected leaders represent our entire community.
The League of Women Voters of McLean County is proud to partner with several local community organizations to fulfill our mission. For a full list of LWVMC
