LWVUS Statements on Recent Events in the Presidential Campaign
Attack on former President Trump

Press Release -July 13, 2024

"The National Task Force on Election Crises unequivocally condemns the attack that injured former President Trump, which took place as a crowd of his supporters were exercising their freedom of peaceful political assembly. Our thoughts are with the former President, as well as with the other innocent victims of this horrific act of violence. There is no place for violence in American politics."

Biden's Withdrawal from Presidential Campaign

Press Release -July 21, 2024

Concerned about Misinformation?  How Should You Respond?

Rule # 1 - Do NOT Respond

     photo of hands on a smartphone with emoji graphics. the photo is crossed out with a red 'ban' symbol

When we see or hear misinformation our first instinct is to argue and present correct information.  This is almost always a bad idea, especially online.  Why?

  • Every time you post a comment, or "like" another person's comment, or click the "angry" emoji, you are helping to spread the original post to more and more viewers.   Responses on social media are exactly what bad actors need to achieve their goals.

What can you do?

  • Join the Civic Listening Corp, a project of the League of Women Voters and the Algorithmic Transparency Institute.
