The LWV does not support candidates or parties, but, after study, takes positions on issues.

The state program documents the positions either our state league LWVWY or the national league LWVUS  have studied and determined to support. This list is updated every two years at the state convention, and these issues guide our advocacy, communication, and actions.    Each local league prepares its program and priorities for the year.

The State Program Archive — 1957 – 2019  (in pdf format) gives the League’s positions on issues.
