How to Vote

Everyone is Welcome!

This page is a work in progress. Information on here will be regularly updated as the details are worked out. Until then, many links will not be active yet.

The convention is a great opportunity for new and long-term members to learn more about the League, meet members from across the state, and be inspired for our next 100 years.

You do not need to be an official delegate of your local League to attend the convention! You may attend all of the programming and caucuses as an interested League member, and if you have a great League prospect who is not yet a member, you can encourage them to attend, too. For voting purposes, only delegates will be able to attend the plenary sessions via Zoom; nondelegates will be able to watch those proceedings livestreamed on YouTube. All sessions will be recorded and available for viewing as soon as we post the videos.

Registration Info

Full registration costs $20.21. Starting on June 17, the price for late registration increases to $50. Registration will open soon!

Delegate Information

The convention delegates shall consist of delegates chosen by the members of local Leagues and units-at-large (UALs). Each local League and UAL shall be entitled to voting representation in the convention as follows: one delegate for its first through 15th voting members and one delegate for every 25 additional voting members or major fraction thereof. (The official membership is determined by the LWVUS records of voting members as of February 1, 2021.) The president of each local League (or an alternate) and the members of the state board shall also attend as convention delegates.

If your League has more members planning to attend than delegate slots, contact Delores Irwin. She may be able to find unused delegate allocations that your members can use.
