Empowering Voters

Defending Democracy

The League of Women Voters of Wyoming (LWVWY) is one of the most respected organizations in the state of Wyoming! Our members engage in rigorous and stimulating study and discussion about governmental and public policy issues. Members are actively involved in the political process, maintaining a nonpartisan position, to fulfill our mission.

 

Wyoming Governance 2023

The WY Legislature  began amicably.  Amid the traditions and singing, legislators introduced family who were in the gallery. You could watch some of the House or Senate Day 1 Floor Session.  Standing committees are meeting for the first time, and committee chairs are helping new legislators with how committees work and what documents and testimonies were produced during the Interim.  

The WY league has designed a new approach to legislative advocacy.  This approach relies on:

  • Bill tracking system using the LWVUS platform Quorum.  The spreadsheet is synced with the WY Legislative Services Office’s tables. 
  • A concise set of priorities for the 2023 Legislative Session.  Our lobbyist, Marguerite Herman’s efforts  on behalf of WY leagues will be guided by these priorities.

 

 

 

 

Election Security

The League of Women Voters of Wyoming believes that voting is a fundamental right that must be supported and protected. We oppose legislation limiting those rights that discourage voting, add expense, and create unnecessary barriers. Voter fraud is NOT occurring in Wyoming.

Wyoming election are secure:

There is no evidence of voter impersonation.

There is no evidence that current absentee voting laws, use of ballot drop boxes or early voting have resulted in any significant abuse.

Restriction on voter choice of party affiliation eliminate options and discourage voting.
