High School students in the state of Pennsylvania are invited to prepare a 30-second video submission inviting participation in every election and encouraging attention to local, less-publicized races.
Several hundred students participated in the 2016 contest, with more than one hundred entries from dozens of schools across the state. Help us publicize the 2017 contest to reach even more students and their communities with the message that every election matters. Read More
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.

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.
