Mission of the League
The League of Women Voters, (LWVCC), a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
The League of Women Voters of Carteret County is a nonpartisan political organization that has been serving the citizens of Carteret County since 1996 and has been a strong influence both in voter education and advocacy ever since. The LWVCC encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy and public office through public debates and forums.
The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles.
Voters Service / Citizen Education: We present unbiased nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process, and issues.
Examples of these programs would be our Voter Registration Drives and our Candidate Forums
Action / Advocacy: We are also nonpartisan, but, after study, we use our positions to advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest.
Examples of these programs would be public forums on key issues of importance to the community such as health care for mental health and drug abuse.
To conduct our voter service and citizen education activities, we use funds from the League of Women Voters Education Fund, which is a 501(c)(3) corporation, a nonprofit educational organization. The League of Women Voters, a membership organization, conducts action and advocacy and is a nonprofit 501(c)(4) corporation.
