Position in Brief: Support electoral systems at each level of government that encourage participation, are verifiable and auditable and enhance representation for all voters. (See full position on next page) Voter Representation/ Electoral System Concurrence Position Why? The League of Women Voters currently does not have a position on how we elect our representatives.
