Delegates to the June 2015 League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania State Convention voted to approve a review and update of current election law positions, "focusing specifically on apportionment and redistricting, election procedures, registration requirements, alternatives to closed primaries and alternatives to ‘winner take all’ election systems.”
The topic is timely, given concern about 2016 primaries and caucuses, interest in alternatives to Pennsylvania's current closed primary system and discussions about other ways to ensure responsive government.
Materials and consensus questions are now ready and available for League and member use here. League consensus reports will be due by March 1, 2017.

The League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania (LWVPA) is a citizen organization that never supports or opposes a candidate or political party yet helps voters to learn about government issues and candidates. LWV studies and discusses issues to help members understand government problems so we can make informed decisions when voting and let our elected officials know where we stand on the issues.
