Mission & Goals
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.
Voters Service/Citizen Education. We present unbiased, nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process, and issues. To conduct our voter service and citizen education activities, we use funds from the League of Women Voters Education Fund, which is a 501(c)(3) corporation, a nonprofit educational organization.
Action/Advocacy. We are nonpartisan, but, after study, we use our positions to advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest.
The League of Women Voters, a membership organization, conducts action and advocacy and is a nonprofit 501(c)(4) corporation.
The League of Women Voters-Lynchburg promotes political responsibility through informed and active participation of the citizens of Lynchburg in local and state government.
