LWVPA Announces New Election Law Position
After months of hard work, we are excited to announce our new Election Law Position. We've updated and expanded the position to include open primaries, voter registration modernization, and alternative election systems. Check it out here!
For the fourth consecutive year, LWVPA will be promoting a high school video contest inviting students to highlight the importance of voting.
The theme this year is "What Makes Democracy Work?"
As in the past three years, the videos will be 30 seconds in length and top entries will be used as public service announcements in future election seasons. The top prize will be $1000, with a second prize of $500 and third prize of $250. Students can work alone or in teams. Any student between 13 and 19 currently enrolled in high school or an equivalent academic program in Pennsylvania is eligible.
Winners will be announced on April 15. Past winners are available for view on our LWVPA Video Contest channel.
