More than 225 League of Women Voters affiliates around the country will help register voters as part of this year’s National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, September 22. With presidential primaries just around the corner, the timing has never been better for all of us to ask our networks if their voter registration is up-to-date.
I believe that everyone deserves equal access to vote. The work that the League has done for the last 95 years and continues to do to bring access to citizens in underserved communities is important for the strength of our democracy.
I will be stepping down in a few weeks after 15 years as the League’s executive director. I am confident that the League will continue its work to make American democracy as good as the ideals on which the country was founded.
