Pros & Cons Guide

The League of Women Voters of San Francisco provides non-partisan analysis of the San Francisco Elections. We also maintain an archive of previous Pros & Cons Guides explaining the issues of past elections for public use. Each Pros & Cons Guide is a compilation of publicly-filed ballot arguments, news articles, interviews with various advocates, and online research. The Guides do not represent the opinions of the League of Women Voters San Francisco or the Voter Services Committee.

Are you an LWVSF member interested in working on the Pro Con Guide?

Join us for a Pro Con Guide Orientation on August 17th, 2016. We will be meeting from 6:00-7:30pm at the San Francisco Public Library, 100 Larkin Street, San Francisco, CA 94102
Mary Louise Strong Room- Located on the first floor next to the Information Desk
