Public Policy

AAUW Voter Education Policies

AAUW does not endorse candidates for partisan office, nor any political party.  AAUW state and branches may conduct election-related activities such as candidate forums as long as the activity does not advocate the election of partisan candidates or political parties and the activity is not coordinated with a partisan candidate or political party. AAUW members cannot use the name of AAUW when endorsing candidates or political parties.

On Ballot Issues: When AAUW has a stated position, a member is always free to vote how they wish, but they may not take an opposing position identifying as an AAUW member. Branches may not publicly take opposing positions.
