December 3:  Virtual Coffee Hour      10:30 a.m

                Winterize Your League Experience

The year is ending, the leaves are falling and yes, the holidays are upon us! Father Frost, cold weather and snow are just around the corner! Time to get ready to meet the winter with the League in the safety of your own home.

Join the LWVFRA for our first “virtual coffee hour”.  The theme is Winterize Your League Experience.

We’ll stay warm and comfy on Zoom while re-connecting with League comrades, socializing, catching up with each other and sharing all the things the League is planning to do this winter. If everyone enjoys it this may become a regular feature each month. Look for the Zoom link in the next week or two.

Speakers include Mari Julienne of the Library of Virginia who will discuss Virginia Suffrage efforts and LWV member and former LWV US Executive Director, Nancy Tate, who will focus on League history. She will also have several ideas on how we can all preserve our history.

December 15:   GENERAL MEETING: CONSENSUS ON

                          LWV-VA UPDATED POSITION ON 

                          VIRGINIA ELECTION LAW, PART 1

 

Since several portions of the LWV-VA current Election Law Position have been enacted into law during the past two years, a State study committee has been examining changes that are needed to update the Virginia State League position. The study was divided into two parts: Part 1 to review the security aspects of voting and Part 2, examining other revisions or expansions that may be needed. Our League will review the study and determine our agreement or disagreement with the study’s conclusions on :

  • election processes, laws and regulations (e.g., post-election audits) that ensure free and fair election results, transparency, security and accountability.
  • amendment to State League position to strengthen support for security, including physical security of voting equipment and ballots.
  • Review the State League position supporting electronic voting.
