Revised January 2003
Under very special circumstances, the LWVUS may support or oppose political appointments to federal office with the direct approval of the LWVUS board. If the board is not to meet in time for the matter to be considered, the board shall be polled by telephone or email.
The LWVUS may oppose a nominee only when the nominee clearly has no qualifications for the job—not when the nominee merely holds positions that differ from those of the LWVUS.
State Leagues shall be notified before the LWVUS announces its support or opposition to such an appointment.
