Position Papers


At times, the League of Women Voters of Albany County undertakes a member-approved study, when a study committee researches a local issue and presents findings to the members for discussion and consensus - agreement - about what position we take on that issue.

The reports of three recent local studies follow:

Albany County Legislative Size, an in-depth study to review and, if needed, update a position we had adopted in 2014 that the number of county legislators should be reduced from 39 to 25.
