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.
On Saturday, March 24th at 10:00 am, kids and families will take to the streets to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and we end gun violence and mass shootings at our schools today.
Marches are planned for Riverside, Los Angeles and Long Beach. Visit March for Our Lives website and Facebook for more march locations.

California State June 2018 Ballot Measures
The LWVC board has final positions on the state measures scheduled for the June ballot.
Here’s a quick summary of the League position on each measure.
California Schools and Local Community Funding Act
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.
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.
We hope you will join us in restoring billions of dollars to our schools and communities.
