The LWV of Manhattan/Riley County is part of the network of Leagues that study and define our local, state, and national positions. (See full text of LWVUS positions here). After study and discussion, we take a stand on local issues clearly aligned with our national positions. Our local positions are listed, followed by the national positions.

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.
