The records of the League of Women Voters of Mount Vernon-Lisbon date from 1948 to 1996 and measure 3 linear feet. The records are arranged in three series Administrative, Community involvement and Programs.
The Administrative series (1948-1996) contains the league's by-laws, annual reports and fund raising records. Documents in this series describe the structure of the group and how it operates. The program planning folder provides insight into how programs are chosen for study and the local league's input in deciding state and national programs.
Local league actions such as surveys of garbage collection, housing needs and community recreation as well as reports on the school districts' compliance with Title IX requirements are part of the Community involvement series (1954-1991). The series includes correspondence between the league, the school board and local newspaper discussing meeting-scheduling conflicts and observance of the open-meeting law.
Topics encompassing areas outside the local community are contained in the Programs series (1955-1993). The subjects covered include the federal government, resources and international relations. At the state level the Mount Vernon-Lisbon league studied the taxation process undertaken by the legislature and the judicial system's role in adult corrections, family court and the juvenile justice system.
