The League of Women Voters of Kansas is a grassroots volunteer organization with nine local Leagues across the state. Elected boards consisting of officers and directors govern LWVK and each local League.  The two year terms of state board members are staggered. The LWVK board meets monthly, alternating between conference calls and in-person meetings around the state.

League business meetings, called Councils, convene in even-numbered years. Conventions, more educational and inspirational gatherings, convene in odd-numbered years. Elections take place at both.

Local chapters are members of the state League and state Leagues are members of the national League, The League of Women Voters of the United States.
