WHO ARE THE MEMBERS?

Membership in the League of Women Voters, the most respected and effective grassroots organization in the country, is open to men and women of all ages.

Our members make a visible difference by serving as community leaders using their experience to create positive, lasting change in our communities.

WHY SHOULD I JOIN?

Through participation in League, you will
  • receive an informative newsletter 10 times a year
  • support a lobby for good government; maybe even lobby yourself!
  • help register voters
  • make new professional contacts
  • develop lasting friendships as you meet others in League who share your interests
  • represent the League at local government meetings
  • learn about important issues in our community and
  • support the National League that stands up for good government on a national scale

HOW MUCH TIME DOES IT TAKE?

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. We always can use more help with one of our Committees. See the What We Do page for specific suggestions.

WHAT DO I GET?

You automatically become a member of LWV Delaware and LWV of the United States. You will receive their publications along with the newsletter from the New Castle County League of Women Voters called The Voter which is published 10 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.
