Campaign Pledge

June 2, 2018

LARAMIE—The Wyoming League of Women Voters has drawn up a list of Principles of Campaign Integrity for the 2018 election season in Wyoming. They can serve as a guide for candidates and voters to determine that campaigns that are honest, open and factual.

Wyoming LWV believes campaigns for public office should be conducted in a way that enables voters to be fully and accurately informed about issues and candidates. The five Principles help achieve that goal.

They are:

  1. Candidates will defend the right of every registered Wyoming voter to full and equal participation in the electoral process.
  2. Candidates will conduct honest and open campaigns, stating the sources of facts used in their campaigns.
  3. Candidates will stick to the campaign issues in statements, debates, advertisements, and news releases. They will not permit use of character defamation or other attacks on opponents' personal or family lives.
  4. Candidates will immediately and publicly disavow assertions that misrepresent, distort, or otherwise falsify the facts. 
  5. Candidates will publicly reject actions by supporters that violate these principles.

"We hope these Principles define a standard for honest and fair campaigning, the best way to serve voters," Wyoming LWV President Susan Simpson, Laramie, said. "We invite candidates to endorse the principles, follow them, tell voters of their support, and demonstrate their use."

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan, grassroots organization that fosters a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge, and the confidence to participate.

Names of candidates who support the principles are added to the LWVWY's Facebook page.
