The League of Women Voters of San Diego, Inc. (LWV-SD) is a non-partisan, voluntary, non-profit corporation. LWV-SD was organized in 1936 as a local chapter of the national League of Women Voters of the United States, to promote political responsibility through informed and active participation of citizens in local, county, state, and national government.

LWV-SD’s programs include voter service and citizen education through its League of Women Voters Education Fund, were the League presents unbiased and nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process and political issues.  The League's programs also include an action and advocacy component, whereby the League takes positions on political issues through the use of study committees.

During the 1940s-1950s the LWV-SD’s programs included study committees issues  such as health, housing, juvenile protection, the San Diego harbor, San Diego County government, jury selection, public schools, receiving homes for neglected children, the United Nations, and UNESCO. The League also made several surveys of issues such as San Diego County services, land use & City government, metropolitan planning, and urban renewal.
