The mission of the League is to encourage informed and active participation in government, increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influence public policy through education and advocacy.
League action on selected issues is guided by statements of position arrived at through a process of study and discussion. If consensus is reached on a position, this position becomes the basis for future action. Positions are developed at the local (LWV-SC), state (LWVWA) and national (LWVUS) levels.
- At the national level, the League Impact on Issues explains its public policy positions.
- The League of Women Voters of Washington State maintains an extensive page on its Issues and Legislative Priorities.
- The League of Women Voters of Snohomish County has Positions on issues of public policy.
- LWV-SC develops a statement of Program, a slate of issues to which it devotes time and resources, adopted at its annual meeting.
