Summary of LWVOA Local Program Positions
The Local Program Positions are a summary of all LWVOA positions (arrived at by member consensus and concurrence procedures) on local governmental issues. Along with the national positions and the state positions these are the basis for League action.
The goal of the League of Women Voters is to take action on its positions.
Cooperation among governmental units (schools, parks & recreation, library, township & city government, community services, etc) is implied in the statement of LWV principles and applies to all positions.
Below are the summary statements of each position. Find more detail about each position on the LWVOA's LOCAL PROGRAM POSITIONS document.
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.
