Organization
The League is a federated organization with local, state and national organizational structures.  Members determine the policies and program of all League levels. Membership is simultaneous on all three levels where applicable.
Nonpartisanship
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization. We encourage the informed and active participation of citizens in government. The League acts in support of, or in opposition to, selected governmental issues which its members have studied. It does not support or oppose candidates, factions or political parties. League members, as individuals, are urged to work in the political party of their choice. In order to protect the League's nonpartisanship policy, guidelines regarding the political activities of the Board of Directors are reviewed frequently.
Financing
The League is a non-profit organization financed by member dues and contributions, and through community and national finance drives which enable public-spirited citizens to help support the work of the League. Dues are collected at the local League level with Per Member Payment (PMP's) assessments made to National and State Leagues by the local Leagues. A tax deductible LWV Education Fund can be used for publications and Voter Service information.
