Where We Stand


While the League does not endorse candidates, it does offer guidance on King County ballot measures after conducting a thorough study of the ballot language, assessing an initiative’s pros and cons, and interviewing and/or requesting information from campaigns both for and against the measure. Based on the League’s public policy positions, it may support, oppose, or remain neutral (take no position) on a measure. 

No position taken on measures in 2023.

Lobby Team

Each year, the state League sets priorities for action during the legislative session in Olympia. The current legislative issues are published in early December. Team members then follow bills relating to the priorities. To follow the action, sign up for the legislative newsletter - a weekly email with a rundown on the bills being followed by the team members. To find out how to be a part of the State League's Lobby Team, contact the League of Women Voters of Washington at (206) 622-8961 or

How To Write an LTE

We encourage you to write letters to the editor about the issues that matter to you. While only the LWVSKC President can speak on behalf of our League, your voice as an individual matters!

In February 2022,  LWVNJ offered this excellent training on writing Letters to the Editor. With their permission, we are sharing the slides and a link to the video from that training. Thank you,  LWVNJ!
