Action & Advocacy

The League of Women Voters of Howard County is a local unit under the League of Women Voters of Maryland (LWVMD) and part of the League of Women Voters of the United States (LWVUS). As such we support positions taken on issues of public interest by the LWVMD and LWVUS. 

Issue Positions are developed through research and study of available facts, leading to a consensus of members as to the policy recommendations meriting League support. 

The League is proud to be nonpartisan, neither supporting nor opposing candidates of political parties at any level of government, but always working on issues of vital concern to our members and to the public. 

The League encourages informed and active participation in government by citizens at all levels, and works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences policy through education and advocacy.

    The 2017 Maryland General Assembly was very successful for the League’s environment positions! For example, Maryland now has a ban on hydraulic fracturing that will protect our land and water. The amount of renewable energy that utilities are required to purchase increased to 25 percent by 2020. The EmPOWER energy efficiency program by utilities is codified in law.
