League of Women Voters of Hawai'i, an affilate of the League of Women Voters of the United States, formed in 1920 to ensure that the newly-won voting privilege attained by women would be cast in an informed and thoughtful manner. The League of Women Voters is "a nonpartisan political organization which 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."

According to the League's website:

"There are three local Leagues in Hawaii and a Member-at-Large unit on Maui. The League of Women Voters of Honolulu, founded in 1948, and the Kauai and Hawaii County Leagues, work on issues addressed by their county councils, mayors and county departments and agencies. The Maui Member-at-Large unit is also addressing local voter issues as it works to become a full-fledged League.

The League of Women Voters of Hawaii is a council of the local Leagues. Its programs cover those issues which are addressed by the state legislature and administered by the governor and appropriate departments and agencies.
