Welcome to the League of Women Voters Utah

The 2016 Voter Guide is Here!

The League of Women Voters has asked your candidates to respond to questions before the November election. You may view responses from candidates for U.S. House and Senate and all Utah State office positions, Salt Lake County and Davis County local offices.

Vote Responsibly

The above Voter Guide should give you an idea of what your candidates stand for, but do you understand the Constitutional Amendments being proposed? The State of Utah publishes a Voter Information Pamphlet which gives pros and cons to each proposal. It is worth reading before you vote. You may also want to read the Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission's report on retaining judges. 

Fall Happenings

It's Fall, and the election is not the only big event going on. Please join the League to learn about the challenges of population growth and to explore Death with Dignity in a play. Check out our Events tab.

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. 

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.
