Positions and Advocacy

Positions on issues…never on candidates…are taken at the national, state and local levels of the League of Women Voters. Advocacy on issues is based on both the Principles of the League of Women Voters and on positions that are the result of extensive study and an exhaustive consensus process with League membership.

The League of Women Voters of Washington establishes a set of Legislative Priorities to pursue during the legislative session.

Local Study
Local programs of study are determined by the membership. After thorough research members come together to discuss the findings and determine areas of agreement in establishing a position on the study topic. Take a look at issues on which the Local League has taken a position.

The current local study is an update of our position on Transportation.
