THE ABC’s OF STATE LEAGUE MEMBERSHIP
Membership is open to anyone 16 years of age or older
Membership in the League of Women Voters of West Virginia may be obtained through state or local channels. Members joining any one level of the League automatically become part of the entire League of Women Voters network.
Local League dues range from $0 to $50. Members living outside these local League areas may become Members-at-Large of the state League, may join FREE if they are a student, or may join a local League. Those who live within an area of a local League may join that League or any other local League.
The four local Leagues you may join include:

This is an individual member of the State League who lives outside the area of a local League. Dues are $40 per year or $60 per year for two members in one household or free ($0 per year) for students enrolled either as full or part time with an accredited institution. Dues are paid directly to the Treasurer of the State League. As part of the League network, Members at-Large receive the national VOTER and the West Virginia VOTER. Additional state League information on program and action is sent from time to time via our email list.
This is an organized group of at least 10 Members-at-Large of the State League. Such groups may be organized at the discretion of the state board in communities where there appears to be sufficient interest. MAL Units may have a small steering committee, but no official board of directors since they are a sub-unit of the State board of Directors. They hold at least four meetings per year and may participate in state and national studies, make program recommendations, and perform Voters Service activities in their community with the permission of the state. Dues for each member of the MAL Unit is $40. Dues for two members in one household are $60. Currently, there is no active MAL Unit.
This is a tightly structured group of at least 25 members who have been granted official recognition by the state and national League. Local Leagues have their own bylaws, elect their own officers, and set their own dues. In addition to participating in state and national program items, they conduct an in-depth study of local government, and carry out voters service, action, public relations and financial development in their communities. Each local League’s respective Treasurer handles membership payment: Huntington, Jefferson County, Morgantown-Monongalia County and Wood County .
The League of Women Voters of West Virginia, and the Leagues of Huntington Area and Jefferson County have waived membership fees for students; Morgantown-Monongalia’s membership fee is now only $5.00 for students.
