A nonpartisan, national organization, the League of Women Voters (LWV) "encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government and influences policy through education and advocacy." Educational service involves the presentation of information about elections, the voting process, and issues. Although it does not support or oppose any candidate or party, the LWV does provide a forum where all candidates may state their positions on the issues. The collection at the University of Mississippi contains the official records of the Mississippi division of this national organization.
Digital Collection Information
The material provided here represents only a fraction of a much larger physical collection whose finding aid is available online. At the moment, the digital collection holds only the collections photographs and recordings.
Although anyone on the internet may access descriptions for all of the recordings, only a selection of the media are streamed on the web due to copyright. Researchers may view restricted recordings through onsite computers in the J.D. Williams Library.
The League of Women Voters of Mississippi Collection finding aid provides further information about the organization and its extensive collection. For other politically-related holdings at the Archives & Special Collections, see the Politics & Government Subject Guide.
The digitization and preservation of recordings in this collection are the result of a project supported in part by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed on this website do not necessarily represent those of the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
