The League Recommends

We recommended a YES vote on Proposition 28, which passed with 61 percent of the vote.

The League occasionally takes a neutral position on ballot measures that deal with issues we have studied, either because there are conflicting League positions or because there are aspects to a measure which in our judgment make our support or opposition inappropriate. The League remained neutral on Proposition 29.

Why Did We Make These Recommendations?

We use our positions to take stands on measures when we have studied the issue and our membership has reached agreement on the policies and positions to support. We never take positions on candidates or political parties.

See our main issues page for more information about how League advocacy works.

If you have questions about League positions and their application to a particular proposition, contact advocacy@lwvc.org.
