Join Us for a “We Demand Democracy” Virtual Town Hall
Last week, our democracy survived an unacceptable attack, as a violent mob incited by the President attacked the US Capitol in an attempt to change the outcome of the election and disrupt the peaceful transition of power. There's a lot of work to do to repair the damage caused by Trump and his enablers. But, we have an opportunity with the new Congress, to transform our democracy. More

Let’s Make It Permanent
This year's pandemic created a new host of obstacles for our elections, forcing West Virginia to get creative in order to keep voters and poll workers safe. This included expanded access to absentee voting options, which allowed voters to make their voices heard without risking their lives -- leading to record turnout across the nation. We saw the impact that increased access to the ballot box had on voter engagement, and we cannot allow that to be taken away. More

Results Are In. The Voters Have Spoken.
With record turnout across our nation, Americans made their voices heard. But unfortunately, our systems are being challenged by players who want to change the rules of the game. Some politicians are attempting to sow doubt by using unproven claims to change the outcome of the election because they are afraid of losing. We must continue to remain diligent in the face of misinformation as our new government is formed over the next few months.   More

Hang Tight – Our Democracy is Working
It may take a while for all of the votes to be counted but the most important thing is that all votes are counted and everyone’s voice is heard.

American voters will determine the outcome of the election, not any particular politician or government body.  More

Recipe for Confusion
The state made the decision to not automatically mail ballot applications for the November general election. Changing up the rules is a recipe for confusion, and with WV having one of the lowest turnout rates in the nation, we should be working to expand access to voting, not putting in place more barriers. WV Citizens for Clean Elections is fighting against this disenfranchisement by informing voters about the voting process. Help us in our mission of fighting for clean elections by donating today so we can help voters navigate the process and cast their ballots. More

Stealing the Court
After our country lost the great leader and icon, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, it only took a few days before powerful special interests launched a well-funded, politically motivated campaign to steal the court. West Virginians are no stranger to special interests and dark money swaying our court systems, which is why we are not going to sit on the sidelines and wait to see what happens. Join us in the fight to save our democracy. More

Tell Delegates to Reject Unnecessary Court
The West Virginia Legislature cannot justify the expense of creating a new layer of judicial bureaucracy, but the House Finance Committee voted to send SB 275, which would create an intermediate court of appeals, to the full House even though they couldn't pin down the exact cost. Tell the WV House committee members to reject SB 275 and invest the money that would be wasted on an unnecessary intermediate court on things West Virginia needs. More
