Why Join the League of Women Voters

I believe in service to both the small and large community
And so I am a member of the LWV.

I believe in personal responsibility for our environment, our schools, our families, and our cities.
And so I’m a member of the LWV.

I believe in seeking the truth, even when the answer is not popular, or even believed.
And so I am a member of the LWV.

Most of all, I believe in myself.  I value my opinion. I value my vote.
And so, especially for this reason, I am a member of the LWV.

Quote from 1991 LWV of Oklahoma newsletter, in-coming state chair Kathy Hinkle
