The League of Women
Voters® is a
nonpartisan organization which encourages the
informed and active participation
of citizens in government and
influences public policy
through education and
is open to
any citizen of voting age.
The League of Women
Voters® never supports or opposes candidates
for office, or political parties, and any use of the
League of Women Voters® name in campaign advertising or
literature has not been authorized by the League.
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:
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
Canton Area League of Women Voters
