If I join, how much of a time commitment am I making?

It's up to you! Many members choose to support the League only with their annual dues. Your membership alone gives us the political influence needed to build a voice for citizens and a force for change. We cover a broad spectrum of issues and concerns; you may choose to become involved in one or more of them by actively participating in a group study, or listening to a panel of experts at a meeting or just reading about them in one of our publications.

What do I get from my League membership?

You automatically become a member of LWV Indiana and LWV of the United States. You will receive their publications along with the newsletter from the Greater Lafayette League of Women Voters called The Voter which is published several times each year. You will have the knowledge that you are adding your voice to a powerful force of members from all 50 states, Washington DC, the Virgin Islands, and Hong Kong.
