About The League
The League of Women Voters of Westport was founded in 1949 by six women. In their research, they discovered that Westport had no charter for town government. A Westport Charter Revision Commission was established that included LWV members. The resulting charter was approved by a special act of the state legislature.
The League is proud to be nonpartisan, neither supporting nor opposing candidates or political parties at any level of government, but always working on vital issues of concern to members and the public.
What Else Does the League Do?
