The League uses study and consensus to adopt positions at the national, state or local levels. For League to adopt a position, members must conduct sanctioned studies on an issue for a two-year period. The recommendations from the study are brought to the larger body for a vote, and if approved, become part of the official positions of LWV.
LWVMN's Program For Action provides an overview of the LWVUS positions alongside the state-specific positions LWVMN has adopted. LWV Minnesota, as part of LWV United States, automatically adopts all positions of the LWV United States. (See Impact on Issues for LWVUS positions).
