League of Women Voters of Greater Pittsburgh's Annual Meeting

At this meeting we will elect new board members, review and approve a budget and program for the coming year.   Meet your board members, and learn how LWVPGH adapted to meet the challenges of a locked-down election year.  You can review the Annual Meeting Workbook*, which contains committee reports, board nominations, and a proposed budget.


The online format makes it easy to attend. Register here to receive the Zoom link.

House Bill 1300 will come up for a floor vote in the PA House soon.  This bill proposes several reforms to Pennsylvania Election Law.  The LWVPA opposes several measures of this bill including,  

  • shifting the voter registration deadline back to 30 days before the election,
  • setting conditions for ballot return locations that would limit their availability, and
  • creating many unfunded mandates that would burden county election boards. 
Contact your state Representative and ask them to vote "No" on House Bill 1300.

"
For over a century the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania has worked to expand access to the ballot and to create an informed, empowered citizenry...

...[The] bill offers small fixes for the most pressing requests from county election officials, but far more of the bill appears designed to address non-existent problems and discourage potential voters...


...On behalf of PA voters, we ask legislators to set HB 1300 aside, wait for recommendations approved by a majority of the Election Law Advisory Board, and vote quickly on long-neglected redistricting reform bills with broad bipartisan support, HB 22 and SB 222."
