The People Powered Fair Maps Campaign is a national redistricting campaign of the League of Women Voters focused on creating fair political maps nationwide. The campaign includes actions in all 50 states + D.C.
The work will look different in each state, but the campaign is comprised of five major focus areas:
Ballot Initiatives or Referendums
State Constitutional Options
State Legislative Fixes
Federal Legislative Fixes
Civic Engagement & Education
Each state will engage in at least one of the four focus areas through advocacy, education, organizing and mobilization, partnerships, litigation, and/or protection/defensive action.
Additional guidance regarding program planning will come out this fall, following our usual timeline, but the LWVUS Board is excited to share that they voted to recommend the concurrence on the electoral process that was shared with state leaders earlier this year by a group of dedicated volunteers.
In collaboration with some wonderful League volunteers from Maryland, LWVEF has again asked the candidates running for President to provide answers to some of the most pressing public policy questions. Those candidates that meet LWVEF’s criteria have been invited to participate in this activity. Thanks to input from League members across the country we have also included a question specifically designed for low literacy publications for the first time. The LWVEF Board is happy to have again undertaken this crucial voters’ service project.
Take a look at the new VOTE411.org website (https://www.vote411.org/) and start thinking about things you can do to help citizens use it effectively. People have gotten used to a certain look and now that it has changed, there may be some confusion and frustration.
When you are at events, be sure to have phones, tablets, or laptops available so that you can show it to folks and see if they have any questions. But, before you do that, take a few minutes to run through it yourself and see what has changed.

We have created waivers and notice templates for Leagues to use when conducting photo and video shoots of your events. It is important to use these forms in order to protect the League’s right to photos and videos recorded for organic and promotional use. You can find these templates here. They are also provided as a link under Resources on the Brand Standards page.
