LWVSC Serves Snohomish County by:
The League of Women Voters of Snohomish County (LWVSC) is the local branch of the League of Women Voters of the United States (LWV). Members of LWVSC are also members of the national League and of the League of Women Voters of Washington (LWVWA).
The League is nonpartisan; it acts in support of, or in opposition to, selected governmental issues which its members have studied. It does not support or oppose candidates, factions, or political parties. League members, as individuals, are urged to work in the political party of their choice. In order to protect the League's nonpartisanship policy, guidelines regarding the political activities of the Board of Directors are reviewed frequently.
