League of Women Voters of Vermont Supports Proportional Voting

In May of 2008, the League of Women Voters of Vermont updated its position on redistricting and voting methods to include support for proportional voting methods: "The League of Women Voters of Vermont supports the principle of legislative districts using alternative voting methods, such as proportional representation in multi-seat districts, as a way of achieving both competitive elections and fair representation of both majorities and minorities within a district."

The LWV of VT joins the Arizona and South Carolina chapters in acknowleding the role that proportional voting systems can play at solving some of the challenging issues of fair representation facing the United States.
