• LWV.org  and forum.lwv.org are two separate websites.

All resources for members and Leagues are now on the Member Resources website at forum.lwv.org

If a member needs help locating a specific piece of content, they should use the search function at the top right corner of this site, forum.lwv.org

Be sure to choose the “Entire Site” option when using the search function on forum.lwv.org 

  • Three places you’ll find  important content.

Red alert box at the top of the page: time-sensitive opportunities or upcoming deadlines. (If you don’t see the red box, we’re not communicating a time-sensitive request)

Blue boxes in the right-hand side bar: information on recent events or frequently accessed content

Featured Content: recently-added content

  • You don’t need to be logged in to access materials.
  • Drop down menus v. clicking directly on the red headers.

If you hover your cursor over the red headers at the top of the page you will see a short drop down menu of some of the most popular content in that specific section.

The drop down menus are not exhaustive

if you don’t see what you are looking for, you can click directly on the red header and they will bring you to a larger map of that section

  • Types of searches: Key word searches:

Our search function is really good, but it’s not on the level of Google

If you don’t find what you are looking for the first time you search, be sure to adjust your search terms

Try two or three different word combinations or make a phrase singular rather that plural to see if that helps change the search results

  • If something’s broken, help us fix it!

This website is evolving; we are always trying to ensure that it is as easy to use as possible and we need your help

If you find a link that isn’t working or you are confused about the layout, let us know by filling out the User Survey that is located in the right-hand side bar of every page

This is the best way for us to ensure that we have a record of the feedback we receive all in one place and so that we can address concerns as quickly as possible
