Our Non-Partisan Status

3D-Women-Question-02 copyRecently the League of Women Voters has seen some discussions about our nonpartisan status, so we wanted to take the opportunity to explain exactly what that means.

We NEVER endorse or support political parties or candidates, but we DO take positions on key policy issues. Our membership carefully weighs and deliberates a number of stances on key issues before coalescing around a particular position. When these issues come up at the local, state or national level, we use these positions to inform our work and to make decisions on what legislation we will support or oppose.

To learn more about any of our specific positions, please read Impact on Issues which includes the history of our work on these issues as well as our policy positions.
