LWV positions are developed after study and consensus. LWVDE positions are presented in their entirety at LWVDE Positions, 2017-2021
Policy positions developed by LWVUS following study and consensus can be used for advocacy at the state and local levels. These positions are detailed in a publication called Impact on Issues. It includes the official statements of position for each program area, briefly traces significant past actions and achievements, and indicates links among positions. The LWVUS public policy positions reflect the 2016-2018 program adopted by the 2016 convention of the League of Women Voters of the United States; the "positions in brief" listed there summarize the official statements of position included in this guide. The document is updated following each biennial convention.
