About the league

The LWV is a grassroots organization where its members are the decision-makers.  It is political because Leagues take action on a wide variety of governmental issues on a national, state and local level.  It is non partisan because the organization does not support candidates or parties.  The LWV can support issues after a thorough study results in support of the issue.
