Join LWV Evanston

Serving the people of Evanston & Skokie, Illinois, since 1922.

Local Issues and Programs

The LWVE takes action at the local level based on LWVUS, LWVIL and LWVCC positions, as well as its own local positions, in the following public policy areas:

  • Representative Government

  • Natural Resources

  • Social Policy

The positions on all the issues which have been studied, and consensus reached, are articulated in the  LWVE Local Positions.

Whatever the issue, the League believes that efficient and economical government requires competent personnel, clear assignment of responsibilities, adequate financing, coordination among levels of government, effective enforcement, and well defined channels for citizen input and review. 

Where We Stand, 2017-2019 is the platform of the League of Women Voters of Illinois. It covers the LWVIL state positions and the action foci adopted at the 2013 Convention, and is designed to help local Leagues use the state program effectively. It is a companion to Impact on Issues, the League of Women Voters of the United States' program book.
