Trump ‘fraud’ commission is a tool for voter suppression
The Presidential Election Integrity Commission has no credibility and is a pretext for voter suppression. This waste of government resources and invasion of our privacy is all being done in an attempt to suppress people’s right to vote.  West Virginians and our state officials should refuse to cooperate in any way with this sham commission.More

The 82nd West Virginia Legislature Scorecard
The 82nd West Virginia Legislature is made up of the 2015 and 2016 legislative sessions. It was unique in that for the first time since the middle of the last century, conservatives had control of both the House of Delegates and the state Senate. Needless to say, it was not a two year stretch of progressive lawmaking. This is one of the reasons WV Citizen Action Group decided to revive its legislative scorecard. Citizens need to know how their elected representatives voted on issues of importance, especially before the upcoming election.More
