The League's study program consists of those governmental and public policy issues that League members in Maine have chosen for concerted study over the years. Studies can lead to adopted positions and advocacy. The League program process begins with selection and adoption of priority issues, continues with study and discussion, and culminates in action and change.
The League produces a number of high-quality and in-depth reports, studies, and publications on important issues. We also produce non-partisan guides, toolkits, and newsletters to keep voters and members as up-to-date as possible. The League remains a top source for reliable, nonpartisan voter information.
The leaders we elect make the decisions that affect us all -- our jobs, health care, energy costs, security, and more. The League helps you get registered, get to know the candidates and issues, and get out and vote.
