LWVUS Board of Directors Statement on the Recognition Status of LWV of Nevada

Press Release / Last Updated:

WASHINGTON – Today the League of Women Voters of the United States board of directors issued the following statement:

“Today the League of Women Voters of the United States board of directors took steps to withdraw recognition of the League of Women Voters of Nevada.

“After months of attempting to resolve multiple policy violations, the board had no choice but to close the state League effective immediately in order to protect the brand and reputation of the League at large.

“While we are deeply disappointed at the loss of the state League, we stand by our members and local Leagues in Nevada working to empower voters and defend democracy. We look forward to working with leaders in Nevada to rebuild a state League presence that fosters stronger partnerships and better reflects what we value.”
