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. At the request of local League leaders, the deadline for consensus question responses has been adjusted. Responses for the sections on Voter Registration and Election Day Procedures has been moved back a month to April 1, 2017. The deadline for sections covering Alternative Election Systems and Primaries is now December 1, 2017. Materials divided to reflect this change will be available in early January.
