The League is a non-partisan organization that does not support or endorse any political party or candidate. However, the League researches and develops position statements on issues such as representative government, international relations, natural resources, social policy and more. We believe that democratic government relies on the informed and active participation of its citizens, and seeks to influence public policy through education and advocacy on issues we have studied. A great strength of the League is that these positions are developed through a grassroots process of consensus and concurrence, resulting in agreement by all local Leagues throughout the country. Recent local studies include Township Government and Library Services in Tippecanoe County. Both reports can be found on the website.
The 2012 election year will engage our members in voter registration and education. Informing citizens about candidates and issues is a primary goal of the League. Keep informed of local League activities through the online calendar. Also on line this year will be our annual Community Events Calendar. It will be easily accessible through our website and no longer in print.
Whether you are interested in helping to provide education to the public, advocating for positions on issues, ensuring the integrity of the election process, or facilitating the operation of the organization, there is a place for you in the League. Joining the local League automatically makes you a member of the State and National Leagues. As a League member, you will receive a copy of our local newsletter (The Voter), as well as publications from the State (http://www.lwvin.org ) and National Leagues. Please sign up for the national electronic publications at http://www.lwv.org . You may also choose to receive action alerts and other time-sensitive information by e-mail.
