Where does the name League of Women Voters come from?
Read through the LWVW history! It’s fascinating. You can also learn more about the League of Women Voters on their website here... www.lwv.org.


Read through our Membership info here!

If I want to join LWVW how should I do it?
Use our online membership form to join. If you would prefer to join by mail, click here to download the PDF file of the membership form. Send it in along with your check (please make payable to "League of Women Voters of Winchester."

What can I hope to do as a member of the LWVW?
We hold several events though out the year and you can be a part of them all or just one that interests you. Being a member is about being as involved as you would like to be. Some members attend events and help out, others help to plan events, others do both. We are always looking for people to help out. Check out our calendar and volunteer opportunities! We are also open to new ideas and welcome your attendance at Steering Committee meetings. Please contact us with your thoughts or questions.

What is the membership fee used for?
Most of the membership fee goes to the LWVUS to do the work they do nationally. We get back a small percentage which we use to create our events in town.

Can men become members of the League?
Yes! The League started out as a women’s organization and then became open to men and women. We welcome anyone!

How long does the membership last and when is the renewal period?
The membership dues last one year. Our annual membership drive takes place in late November and end December 31. We hope to have our members renewed by early January so that we can report our member numbers to National LWV by January 31st.

I would like to join but the membership cost seems high. Do you have any assistance?
We strongly believe that financial hardship should not be an obstacle to membership. If $65 is difficult at this time please contact us.



Can I volunteer with the League for just one event?
Sure! If you’re interested in the LWVW but aren’t quite ready to join, attend an event or contact us to be more involved.
