The LWVUS bylaws state that the national League board “may grant full local League recognition to groups that have fulfilled the requirements of their state boards and those adopted by the national convention. These requirements are to be seen within the framework of the League’s mission statement and are to serve as a continuing gauge of a League’s health and wellbeing.
The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

The national board liaison for each state is, of course, available to consult with local and state Leagues on these requirements.
