Who is on our board? What is the structure of the League of Women Voters? What is our mission? What is our history?
2019-2020 Board Members
The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles.
Voter Services/Citizen Education: we present unbiased nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process and issues at the national, state and local levels. The Scarsdale League sponsors Youth Services programs, such as Students Inside Albany, to educate young people about the democratic process. We also present speakers on issues of interest to our community at our bi-annual luncheons.
Action/Advocacy: while we are nonpartisan, after study and agreement on positions through our consensus process, we advocate for or against particular issues in the public interest. To conduct our voter service and citizen education activities, we use funds from the League of Women Voters Education Foundation of New York State, which is a 501(c)(3) corporation, a nonprofit educational organization. The League of Women Voters of Scarsdale, a membership organization, conducts action and advocacy and is a nonprofit 501(c)(4) corporation.
Our Vision, Beliefs, and Intentions guide our activities.
