We need to answer the following questions regarding LWVUS policy positions and priorities:

1. Do you support the proposed program focus, continuing the Campaign for Making Democracy Work®? (Yes/No).

2. Would you like to recommend another program item or a new study, in addition to or instead of the Campaign for Making Democracy Work®? (Yes/No) Please provide a statement describing the scope of your proposal including a description of the issue area, its importance in advancing the League’s mission as well as resources needed to carry out the proposal.

3. Which areas of the 2018-2020 national program priorities (Voting Rights, Improving Elections, Money in Politics/Campaign Finance, Redistricting, Other) within the Campaign for Making Democracy Work® has your League worked on during the current biennium? Please share details of your work in the comment section

4. Which LWVUS positions does your League use to act at the state and local level? List all that apply. LWVUS's Impact on Issues presents all LWVUS positions, along with details of how they have been used for action.

5. Would you recommend adoption of the proposed LWVUS concurrence proposal on "Voter Representation/Electoral Systems?"

The meetings will also offer the opportunity to discuss state issues such as Automatic Voter Registration and local points of emphasis such as the 2020 U.S. Census.
