Our Positions

Our Positions are determined by League studies. The League, at the National, State, or Local level, commits to studying an issue such as the electoral college (national), or Illinois charter schools (state) or home rule (local).

Under the guidelines provided by the League, we create a group that:

  • studies  the issue from all angles
  • arrives at a consensus on the questions asked in the study
  • writes a statement on our position

Then, the position is voted upon by the membership.  If accepted, it becomes part of our program and is something that we can advocate for as a League.


Glencoe and Glenview are differently governed communities and, as such, have their own unique positions.

Here are the various positions taken by the League:

Cook County
LWV of Illinois
LWV of the United States
