The League of Women VotersŪ of the Fairfax Area Education Fund

The League of Women Voters of the Fairfax Area (LWVFA) 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. Any- one, male or female, may become a member.

The LWVFA Education Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization that publishes educational materials that neither support nor oppose political parties or candidates for public office. These include this brochure; What's on the Ballot: a list of all candidates and bond issues; and Voters' Guides: all candidates' responses to League-posed questions. The LWVFA Education Fund is supported by donations from our members and the public. We would like to thank the following contributors for their generous support of Facts for Voters:
