Who We Are

League of Women Voters of Dare County is located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The history of this 100 mile long fragile strip of barrier islands boasts of infamous pirates, intrepid pioneers, and inventive playwrights.

We are a grassroots, all-volunteer organization, including both men and women united by a set of core values and principles.

The League neither supports nor opposes candidates or political parties at any level of government.

The League encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Our Mission
Empowering voters. Defending democracy.

Our Vision
We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge and the confidence to participate.

Our Value
We believe in the power of women to create a more perfect democracy.

We are united in our belief that “Democracy is not a spectator sport.”
Madeleine Albright, the first female Secretary of State in U.S. history
