LWVUS Position Priorities 

Current LWVUS Voting Rights Priorities

      • Expanding Voter Access 
            • We fight to increase voters' access to the polls, including expanding early voting, automatic and online voter registration.
      • Redistricting
            • Congressional districts and government legislative bodies should be apportioned substantially on population. We oppose partisan and racial gerrymandering that strips rights away from voters.
      • Money in Politics
            • Elections should be about the voters not big money interests. It's time to limit SuperPACs and secret donors to protect representative democracy.
      • Fighting Voter Suppression 
            • We challenge all efforts and tactics that threaten our democracy and limit the ability of voters to exercise their right to vote.
      • PDF icon Abolition of the Electoral College 
            • We believe that the direct popular-vote method for electing the President and Vice-President is essential to representative government. We support the use of the National Popular Vote Compact as one acceptable way to achieve the goal of the direct popular vote for election of the president until the abolition of the Electoral College is accomplished.

Other Current LWVUS Priorities

      • Healthcare Reform 
            • Every U.S. resident should have access to affordable, quality health care, including birth control and the privacy to make reproductive choices.
      • The Environment
            • As citizens of the world we must protect our planet from the physical, economic and public health effects of climate change while also providing pathways to economic prosperity.
      • Census
            • The U.S. Census data is used to make decisions around education, healthcare, infrastructure, and political representation. With increased growth in the country, getting an accurate and complete count of every person living within is crucial to ensure that each state receives funding to support the number of residents in each state.
      • Immigration
            • Immigration policies should promote reunification of immediate families; meet economic, business and employment needs; and be responsive to those facing political persecution or humanitarian crises.
