The LWVUS Board approved the creation of a new taskforce regarding the national popular vote compact. This taskforce, comprised of a chair from the LWVUS Board and four additional members, will evaluate state League support, assess whether there is enough momentum around this effort to warrant further national engagement, make recommendations on the likelihood of gaining additional votes to pass the interstate compact, and suggest a plan of engagement for LWVUS. The taskforce will complete their work by August 15, 2019, for action by the LWVUS Board at their Fall Board Meeting.
Anyone interested in applying for this taskforce should email Celina Stewart, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline has been extended to indicate your interest to no later than Friday, February 15, 2019, at 5 pm EST. Application materials will be shared with all interested parties shortly after deadline.
