Note: People are sometimes surprised that the League recommends some ballot measures, since we also publish carefully balanced pros and cons on all measures.  The League is non-partisan–but political.  We want to improve our democracy. We study some issues and decide what would be good policies on these issues. After we have adopted our policies, we measure new proposals against our policies and decide whether to support, oppose or stay neutral on a particular issue.  Our recommendations are based on our existing policies and a careful study of the particular proposal.
