The MISSION of The League Of Women Voters is:
Empowering Voters. Defending Democracy.
We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge and the confidence to participate.
We believe in the power of women to create a more perfect democracy.
- The League is a non-partisan political organization; it does not endorse or oppose political candidates or parties at any level of government.
- After careful study and consensus, the League chooses to support or oppose political issues.
We recognize the role of political parties in our form of government and believe that participation in the activities of the political parties is an essential ingredient of citizen responsibility.
While the League urges its members to be politically active, certain constraints are necessary in order to maintain the non-partisanship of the organization.
We are a nonprofit member organization, non tax-deductible 501(c)4 corporation.
Board officers and directors are elected at an annual meeting by League members.
No Board member is a paid staff member of LWVPBC.
