I had joined the LWV a few years ago, but when I found out that they 
blatantly oppose the First Amendment I dumped them ASAP. What else can 
you call a prohibition on "issue-advocacy" ads within 60 days before a 
general election? And what part of "Congress shall pass no law ..." 
don't they understand?

Their stance on voting methods doesn't surprise me a bit.
