League of Women Voters of Mississippi Collection

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. 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.

Some of the recordings in this collection are "Campus Access Recordings": these recordings have restricted access and may only be viewed on computers within the University of Mississippi Libraries. "Open Access Recordings" are not restricted, and may be streamed from any computer. For more information, please contact the Department of Archives and Special Collections.
