What is our mission? How are we structured? What is our history? What are our positions?
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging the informed and active participation of citizens in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy. We never support or oppose any political party or candidate.
The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles.
To conduct our voter service and citizen education activities, we use funds from the League of Women Voters of New Hampshire Education Fund, which is a 501(c)(3) corporation, a nonprofit educational organization. The League of Women Voters, a membership organization, conducts action and advocacy and is a nonprofit 501(c)(4) corporation.
Our Vision, Beliefs, and Intentions guide our activities.
Four local Leagues exist in New Hampshire:
We also have members in areas of the state who are not members of a local League but who are members-at-large.
Local League members and members-at-large are also members of the League of Women Voters of New Hampshire. Local, MALs and League of Women Voters of New Hampshire members are automatically members of the League of Women Voters of the United States.
The web pages of Leagues outside of New Hampshire may be reviewed at other state Leagues and local League websites.
