The U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments on the Moore V. Harper Case on Wed. December 7th and the LWVUS is planning a National Day of Action starting at 9:00am EST in front of the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C.

The League of Women Voters of the US filed an amicus brief at the U.S. Supreme Court in the Moore v. Harper case against the “independent state legislature theory” (ISLT), a theory that would remove the checks and balances of our democracy and give state legislatures complete authority to rewrite the rules of how federal elections are run at the state level. League of Women Voters of Virginia along with all other 49 Leagues in the nation, signed on to this brief.

Today we honor those among our ranks who selflessly served our nation in the United States Military. Your love of country and defense of democracy continues to shine a light for our citizens. Thank you for your continued service to our nation as a volunteer with the League of Women Voters - Fairfax Area.

Sheryl Williams served on active duty and in the reserves of the U.S. Marine Corps from 1988-2018, and retired at the rank of Colonel. During her 30-year military career, she served as a judge advocate attorney. She joined the League of Women Voters because " I wanted to make a difference in our community and country by educating others on the importance of voting and ultimately getting them to register to vote. The work of LWVFA is so important, and I always find it incredibly gratifying when I volunteer. "

Luke Lorenz served as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army as a Tactical Control Officer, operating the Patriot Missile System in an Air Defense Artillery Battalion. Luke is currently the Director of Legislative Affairs for a military-focused nonprofit organization. In 2022, he discovered the League of Women Voters and "felt a clear connection between his service in defense of American interests abroad and the League's service in defense of democracy at home. The two are intrinsically linked, as America strives for the advancement of self governance and individual liberty in both its domestic and foreign affairs." Since joining the League, Luke has assisted with multiple voter registration events and hopes to serve underrepresented communities through voter outreach and education.

League of Women Voters of Virginia has a long and treasured history. Thank you for 102 years of service!!

Today, Nov. 10 is the anniversary of the founding of the Virginia League of Women Voters. After the final passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote, the Equal Suffrage League decided to continue to work together to educate and advocate on voting and social issues. So they had a meeting on Nov. 10, 1920 in the Senate Chamber of the State Capitol and re-formed with the name the Virginia League of Women Voters
