The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging the informed and active participation of citizens in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
The Orange County ILO (LWVOCILO) membership is comprised of the members of the four local leagues in Orange County:
- LWV North Orange County
- LWV Central Orange County Area
- LWV Orange Coast
- LWV Capistrano Bay Area.
The Orange County League of Women Voters board (ILO) voted to support Measure A, which would create an Orange County Campaign Finance and Ethics Commission. Measure A is on the June 7 Primary Election ballot for Orange County. The Ethics Commission would be an independent body that would provide regular and predictable enforcement of campaign finance rules, auditing of campaign financial reports, and training for for staff and candidates on the county's campaign finance rule.
The ILO took the position following a year-long study of money in Orange County politics; the membership issued an approval concurrence statement in November, 2015.
