Our Studies

Issues we are currently studying to develop our position.

What is a study?

Positions result from a process of study. Any given study, whether it be National, State, or Local, is thorough in its pursuit of facts and details. As the study progresses, a continuing discussion of pros and cons of each situation occurs. Prior to the results of the study being presented to the general membership, study committee members fashion consensus questions that are then addressed by the membership.

Election Laws

The League of Women Voters of Virginia’s May 2009 Convention adopted a two-year update study and review of its positions on Virginia’s election laws. During the first year of the study, members looked at voter registration, provisions for voting by military and overseas voters, and the governmental structure responsible for administering elections in the Commonwealth. During the second year, it looked at laws, policies, and procedures affecting elections in Virginia–both prior to and at the polls on Election Day.¬† For complete study details see the Elections Law Study.
