Nonpartisan Policy

The League does not support or oppose any political party, candidate for elective
office, office holder or any group that supports candidates.


Board members shall not run for elective office, or be candidates for appointment
to an elective office, except for judge of election and minority and majority
inspector positions*. Each Board member shall be responsible for
understanding the nonpartisan political policy, anticipating difficulties and
minimizing any risks to the League’s nonpartisan image. A Board member who
cannot comply with this nonpartisan policy of the Radnor League should resign
from the Board.


Board members shall not take an active, visible role in a campaign for a political
candidate. They may not attend candidates’ fundraisers or any other partisan
political affairs.


Members of the Board shall not display partisan buttons, signs or bumper
stickers or distribute partisan campaign literature. A member of the Board may
sign, but not circulate nominating petitions for elective office, may make a
contribution to a political party or candidate, but may not solicit for a political
candidate. A Board member may be a candidate for an appointed governmental
board or committee.


All members of the LWV of Radnor are welcome as observers at Board
meetings. Non Board members are encouraged to be active in their political
parties, to run for office and work in campaigns. Consequently, only the elected
and duly appointed Board members, who have removed themselves from such
partisan activity, may take part in discussions leading to decision making. This
is the Board’s obligation. At the discretion of the President, observers may be
recognized for comment after the business of the meeting is completed. A non
Board member may be invited to give a report to the Board, but again, should
otherwise remain an observer.


It is the responsibility of the President to see that every Board member has a copy
of this policy, and that it be reviewed at the first meeting of each Board.
