  ACTION GUIDE: NOV. 4, 2008

In our Action/Advocacy role, the League is nonpartisan but we use our positions to advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest. We never take positions on candidates or political parties.

We recommended a "YES" vote on Propositions 1A, 3, 5, and 11 and a "NO" vote on Propositions 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. (Click on number to see detailed analysis). See Election results.

We only take stands on measures when we have studied the issue and our membership has reached agreement on the policies and positions to support.

Because League positions do not cover the issues in Proposition 2, Standards for Confining Farm Animals, and Proposition 12, Veterans’ Bond Act of 2008, the LWVC took no stand on these measures.


For information about League positions and their application to a particular proposition, contact advocacy@lwvc.org. See also "How we develop our stands on issues".

For nonpartisan analyses of all propositions, see the League of Women Voters of California Education Fund publications Pros & Cons, Easy Voter Guide and In Depth.

For nonpartisan analyses of all propositions, see Smart Voter's compilation of nonpartisan information from the League and other sources at www.smartvoter.org.
