Welcome to the League of Women Voters of Riverside
Serving the City of Riverside as We Make Democracy Work
The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
The next election is the State-Wide California Gubernatorial Primary in June 5, 2018.
Any eligible Californian who has access to the Internet and a California drivers license or ID signature on file with the DMV can now register to vote on-line.
The Inland Empire's Women's March will begin at the Riverside
County Superior Court, 4050 Main Street, at 10:00 am on Saturday, January 20th.
The March should be about a mile long and finish at 12:00 noon.
Learn more about the event at Rise Up California and The IE Women's March on Facebook. Organizers would appreciate an RSVP to help them plan for crowd size.
The Clean Power Plan was President Barack Obama’s signature policy on climate change and it represented one of the strongest actions ever taken by the United States to combat global warming.
But it has never taken effect, and the Trump administration hopes to repeal it before it does.
Please read the LWV US response to the plan's repeal. Members are encouraged to submit comments to the EPA at the online rulemaking portal through January 16, 2018.
"Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex."
After 45 years,is the time finally ripe to add these words to our constitution?
Big News! After almost 40 years, the LWVC is seizing the moment to close the corporate loophole in Proposition 13 that keeps too many companies from paying their fair share.
Since 2015, the League has been a part of the Make It Fair coalition—which filed an initiative to do just that.
The California Schools and Local Communities Funding Act of 2018 will create a “split roll”; non-residential, non-agricultural commercial property will be reassessed on a regular basis. This will lead to an estimated increase in property tax of over $11 billion per year—revenue that will go directly to schools and local governments.
LWVC will be distributing petitions for members to collect signatures. We hope you will join us in restoring billions of dollars to our schools and communities.
