The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles.
Our Vision, Beliefs, and Intentions guide our activities.

We also have members in areas of the state who are not members of a local League or unit but who are valued members of the state League.
Local League members and members-at-large are also members of the League of Women Voters of New Hampshire. Local Leagues, members at large and League of Women Voters of New Hampshire members are automatically members of the League of Women Voters of the United States.
The web pages of Leagues outside of New Hampshire may be reviewed at other state Leagues and local League websites.
