We research all aspects of an issue, be it local, regional, state or national.
We extend this information to others through membership in coalitions and through public forums.
We present nonpartisan public meetings on ballot measures and public forums for candidates for elective office.
We lobby for causes for which our organization has reached consensus.
We encourage broad-based citizen participation in the democratic process.

What is a Position?
The League of Women Voters takes action on an issue only when we have a position addressing that particular issue. Members must study and come to consensus on an issue, in order to form a position. This thorough grassroots process ensures that our advocacy is well considered by a broad range of people, understood by our members, and we have a sense of the political environment.
