The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
The League of Women Voters is strictly nonpartisan; it neither supports nor opposes candidates for office at any level of government. At the same time, the League is wholeheartedly political - working to influence policy through education and advocacy. It is the original grassroots citizen network, directed by the consensus of its members across the country.
Membership is open to all residents of the United States, both women and men, who are 18 years or older. In New Mexico, there are four local leagues. All local members are automatically members of LWVNM as well as the national League of Women Voters of the United States (LWVUS). New Mexicans who do not live near any of the existing local leagues may join LWVNM as a member at large.
