New League Publication: Restoration of Voting Rights: A guide for Citizens with Prior Felonies


What We Do

Action & Advocacy

We take action on an issue or advocate for a cause when there is an existing League position that supports the issue or speaks to the cause.


We organize Candidate Forums prior to elections to give voters opportunities to learn more about the candidates. We also organize issue forums to dive into complex issues like redistricting and voting rights for fact-based discussions and be better informed citizens in our democracy.

Voter Education

We make voting easier by preparing and distributing useful publications. Publications are made available to the public in our libraries, community centers and many other sites. Check out VOTE411 our easy to use online one-stop shop voters' guide.

Upcoming Events

Candidate Forums

Fairfax County will have over 50 offices on the ballot this fall. Elections range from Soil and Water Commission to the Fairfax County School Board and the Board of Supervisors. In addition, the entire General Assembly will be on the ballot. To serve you, our voters, we are holding 13 Candidate Forums across Fairfax County.
