  • Election FAQ'S: The LWVLA operates a voter help hotline before every election. The Election FAQ'S page is a convenient compilation of the most commonly asked questions that we receive.

  • Representative Lookup: The Representative Lookup page features helpful sources that assist you in finding and providing information on your citywide, statewide, and nationwide representatives.

  • Election Schedule: The Election Schedule page is a handy source for all important schedules and dates regarding upcoming elections.

  • Political Parties: The LWVLA Political Parties page serves to educate the public about the structure of political parties on both a local and national scale. It also provides information on the general views of each party, and the steps to joining a political party.
