Before taking a position on a public policy issue, the League involves its grassroots membership in a thorough study of the subject. We look at all sides and implications. Then our membership must reach consensus on a position. Studies are done at the national, state, and local levels.

The study and consensus process is described in Study to Action, also available on the LWV Ohio website.


There are no ongoing local studies.
