View the League’s Ballot Recommendations for the November 2016 Election
This is not the League Pro Con Guide. The League takes action on an issue when we have a position that supports the issue or speaks to the cause. These positions exist at the local, state, regional, and national levels of the League, and are always the result of thorough study and membership consensus. For more information visit our Advocacy and Action page.
