League Position On Election Security

 

Election security has always been part of defending democracy. It became a pressing issue after the 2020 election. As you know, the League only takes action when we have a position on an issue. Current League positions on election security are inadequate for us to advocate effectively. Sparked by LWV Oregon’s recent position about election security, a small group read, consulted experts and wrote the documents below (also available in our Document Library), which include a draft position on election security. The LWVCO Board is sharing this information for discussion and consensus.

At the LWVUS Convention in June, we want to present a state position for national concurrence that may be used by Leagues everywhere. For that to happen, we must get an adopted position to LWVUS well before spring, so we have a compressed timeline.

Please join our statewide Election Security Consensus Meeting on Saturday, Jan. 22 at 10 a.m. to give us input in finalizing an election security position. Local League Leaders: You are welcome to hold your own consensus meeting, but the January 22 meeting is intended for all LWVCO members, so feel free to proceed with your existing January plans. If you have a Local Consensus Meeting, we need all feedback from your meeting sent to info@lwvcolorado.org by end of day on Sunday, Jan. 30. Thank you for your engagement in defending the security of elections and our democracy!
