The LWVNE and the local Leagues offer many ways to get involved. You can join a local League if you live in Hastings, Lincoln, Greater Omaha or Seward. Local Leagues offer many activities and programs. If you live in other Nebraska communities, you can be a member-at-large of the state League. We encourage all members to be involved by serving on state committees.
