Your LWVBCo membership supports the work done by the league at the state and national level, and you automatically become a member of the state and national league when you join. Dues are split among the organizations and are used to support the league’s work on all levels. Nationwide there are more than 700 leagues (15 in Maryland) and 500,000 members. As a member you have access to events, webinars, publications, and the combined efforts of half a million members nationwide who work to advocate for social and economic justice for all.
The league is nonpartisan. We do not support or oppose candidates for public office, but advocate only on those issues chosen by the consensus of the membership. The league believes that political parties are essential to the American system of government and that participation is
beneficial to the political parties and to the system. Consequently, the league encourages its members as individuals to be active in the political process, including supporting candidates for public office and in seeking election to public office, partisan or non-partisan.
Only to the extent that the public and its elected officials are convinced of the league's genuine nonpartisanship will the league be able to render effective voter service activities and gain a wide base of support for its positions on governmental issues.
The LWVBCo is fully committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in principle and in practice. We invite members from every gender, gender identity, ethnicity, race, native or indigenous origin, age, generation, sexual orientation, culture, religion, belief system, marital status, parental status, socioeconomic status, language, accent, ability status, mental health, educational level or background, geography, nationality, work style, work experience, job role function, thinking style, personality type, physical appearance, political perspective or affiliation and/or any other characteristic that can be identified as recognizing or illustrating diversity.
The League of Women Voters of Baltimore County, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization, which means that any money received for either donations or membership is tax-deductible for the donor as allowed by law.
