If you do not live in or near one of New Mexico's local Leagues, you can become a Member-at-Large (or MAL) of the League of Women Voters of New Mexico. In general, you should join a local League instead of becoming a Member-at-Large. The local Leagues host many more activities, have more opportunities for volunteering, and provide access to additional publications and resources. New Mexico's Local Leagues publish newsletters on a monthly basis, whereas the State League publishes La Palabra just four times per year.
Members of the local Leagues are automatically members of the League of Women Voters of New Mexico (LWVNM) and will receive not only their local League's newsletters, but also La Palabra. A member of one of New Mexico's Leagues is also automatically a member of the League of Women Voters - United States (LWVUS).
