The League’s Statement of Position on Voter Representation/Electoral Systems as adopted by concurrence by the 54th National Convention In June 2020:
LWVUS promotes an open governmental system that is representative, accountable, and responsive. We encourage electoral methods that provide the broadest voter representation possible and are expressive of voter choices.
Whether for single or multiple winner contests, the League supports electoral methods that:
--Encourage voter participation and voter engagement
--Encourage those with minority opinions to participate, including under-represented
--Are verifiable and auditable
--Promote access to voting
--Maximize effective votes/minimize wasted votes
--Promote sincere voting over strategic voting
--Implement alternatives to plurality voting
--Are compatible with acceptable ballot-casting methods, including vote-by-mail
