The League's program is carried out at the local, county, state and national levels. League members are actively involved in determining which issues we undertake to study at each level. Program suggestions from local meetings are considered by League boards and voted on at local League annual meetings and county, state and national League conventions. Following adoption of a program item, members study the topic, discuss it and arrive at consensus on a position. For more information about the League's action and advocacy efforts Click Here.

Our Scarsdale League reports cover a broad array of issues. For a summary description of the LWVS' current and historical positions on issues, please see our Impact on Issues Summary.
The purposes of the League of Women Voters of Scarsdale (LWVS) shall be to promote informed and active participation of citizens in government and to act on selected governmental issues. The following Local Program for 2017-2018 is a listing of issues the LWVS will monitor, and may promote via public education, and/or study and take to action. The League of Women Voters has local, county, state and national positions, which are the basis for League action. Our Local Program supports these county, state and national League positions where applicable. Each issue listed below has an "Outlook For Work" that identifies specific actions for that issue, but these lists should not be considered exhaustive and none of the action items is mandatory. Further, the order of the following issues and action items does not denote priority and thus leaves the LWVS the flexibility to act as circumstances warrant and the board and membership see fit.x
On Nov. 21, 2016 the LWVS held a public membership meeting to evaluate the Proposed Scarsdale Public Library Renovation Bond. Terri Simon, President of the Scarsdale Public Library Board of Directors, and Elizabeth Bermel, Executive Director of the Library, made a presentation during which they addressed specific League questions, as well as additional questions from the audience.
