Fair Maps

Redistricting happens every 10 years following the national census process. Fair Maps redistricting reflects communities of voters and are key to maintaining our representative democracy. In 2020, the LWV-Appleton joined the Wisconsin Fair Maps Coalition to insist on a transparent and non-partisan process for determining Fair Maps for all our legislative districts.

Climate Resilience

The Climate Change Preparedness and Resilience Study Committee understands that the topic of Climate Resilience is vast, complex and evolving through new knowledge. While its two-year study is complete, the study members hope that the new Climate Resilience Committee can help carry forward many of the study's recommendations, continue further research, keep track of positive stories, and assist with League advocacy.

We hope to attract anyone interested and passionate about this topic, especially diverse people who hope to effect positive actions in our community.

Voting Rights

A core value of the League of Women Voters for over 100 years is the right to vote in free and fair elections. The biggest barrier to voting is ensuring that voters are registered to vote. 

In Wisconsin, voter registration is tied to our Department of Motor Vehicles which issues the individual photo IDs now required to vote in Wisconsin. This change has challenged the freedom to vote for many citizens. To read more about Wisconsin’s voting challenges: Getting There is Half the Battle, Wisconsin’s Photo ID Law, Access to DMV Services, and the Fight for the Freedom to Vote

Observer Corps

League’s Observer Corps starts where the local action is: at Common Council, County Board and Board of Education meetings. We observe local government meetings that make a difference in our community and in our lives here. 

Interested in seeing firsthand how our elected officials make decisions that affect us? Join our Observer Corps. You can attend with a League partner or solo, whatever you prefer. All we ask is that you report back to us with the highlights of the meeting. This can be done by email or using an online database. Learn more by contacting Action Vice President Jan Quinlan at

Executive Action Team

Selected for their extensive involvement in local government, our Executive Action Team keeps an ear to the ground on emerging issues. Education, Equity, Budgets, Fair Maps, Health Care and more -- this team reports to Action Vice President Jan Quinlan when possibilities for League Action are brewing. If you are already plugged into local government issues and/or intensively involved in advocacy, contact Jan Quinlan to see if the Executive Action Team would be a good fit for you.
