Patriotic arrangement
The League of Women Voters (LWV) is a nonpartisan organization whose purpose is to promote the informed and active participation of citizens in government. This means the League does not support or oppose candidates for public office or political parties and acts only on issues chosen by the membership for study and action. The League believes that political parties are essential to the American system of government and participation of informed citizens is beneficial to the political parties and to the system. 

Members study community issues in depth, take positions and then act based on knowledge gained in the comprehensive study.

A Board of Directors operates the Local League. An annual membership meeting is held every spring and numerous events are held throughout the year. We depend on volunteer assistance for all aspects of Local League work.

Our 2024-2025 officers are:
President: Nancy Halvorson
Vice-President: Ellie Hutton
Secretary: Cindy Maltsberger
Treasurer: Marlene Niemeier
