Study Guides and Consensus Questions Now Available for LWVUS Studies

Find information on the LWVUS studies quickly! Most of the materials for the two studies—on the Constitutional amendment process and on Money in Politics—are now available. The easiest way to get to these resources is to go to lwvma.org, look on the right under Quick Links, and choose LWVUS Constitutional Amendment Study and Money in Politics (MIP) Review and Update. There are three webpages: one overall summary and one for each study.

The newest addition is the Study Guide for the MIP study. It includes background, links to reading materials, definitions, and consensus questions. This guide will likely be updated as a few more reference materials are finalized, so be sure to check back at the link below to get the most updated version when you are ready to use it.
