Do not be confused!

The League of Women Voters® – at local, state, or national level – NEVER endorses candidates.

Other party-affiliated organizations may go by names that are similar to ours, in hopes of co-opting our long-established, trusted reputation.

But the League of Women Voters® never supports or opposes candidates or political parties.
To the editor of The Repository: (appeared in the September 22 issue)

As the November 3 general election nears, the Canton Area League of Women Voters wants to insure that area citizens are not confused by endorsements from organizations with names that sound similar to ours. The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization that never endorses candidates for office.

Our Voters Guide provides unbiased, nonpartisan information on candidates and issues to area voters. We take our nonpartisan stance very seriously and understand that it is critical to maintaining our reputation as a reliable source of unbiased information about issues and candidates.

Some 10,000 copies of our Voters Guide for the 2016 general election will be distributed to public libraries, schools and dozens of other locations around the county early next month. An electronic version of the Voters Guide as well as a special section about candidates for the Canton charter commission will also be available in early October at our website: http://cantonlwv.org/

Don’t be confused by organizations with similar-sounding names. There is only one League of Women Voters and we never endorse candidates for office.

Thank you for this opportunity to set the record straight.

Amy Shriver Dreussi, president
