Presidential Elections and the League
The League of Women Voters, with an underlying respect for the United States voter, has long studied how our democracy works. Issues such as the Direct Election of the President and the role of the Electoral College are currently of general interest. Here is more information on the League's positions.

The Utah Voter:
Public Defense in Utah
Statement of Purpose: In 2016 the League became aware of two studies, one by the Sixth Amendment Center (2015) and one by the ACLU (2011) both of which found the state of Utah was deficient in fulfilling its responsibility to ensure indigent defendants receive their constitutionally-guaranteed right to counsel. This study is the result of the League's investigation into the issue. It presents information about Utah's present attempts to meet its constitutional responsibility and what still needs to be addressed.
Sexual Violence in Utah
A LWV of Utah Study
One in three Utah women will experience some type of sexual violence in their lifetime. This startling statistic from the Utah Health Department has led the League to study this issue. Read the result and learn about possible interventions. See the League Position here.
Death with Dignity
A LWV of Utah Study
Death with Dignity legislation has become of increasing public interest and concern. Currently five states have legislation allowing physician aid in dying - Oregon, Washington, Montana, Vermont and California. Additionally, interpretation of physician assisted dying legal standing is under review in New Mexico. It is anticipated that this issue will remain on legislative agendas not just in Utah, but many other states as well. Check out the League Position here.
