Welcome to our website!

The League of Women Voters of the Hamptons (LWVH) hopes that members (and potential members) as well as non-members visit frequently. You'll find information about registration and voting, our activities, committees and meetings.

The League is non-partisan -- we never support or oppose any political party or candidate for elective office. But we are political. Members are encouraged to fully take part in the political process. We hope that as you get to know us through this site, you'll consider joining us in person! The public is invited to attend all general League meetings. Check out our Calendar for scheduled events.
