Articles About the League

In 2016, our goals are very simple. We plan to: grow the vote, protect the vote and empower voters with information, through our nonpartisan voters’ guides and candidate forums and debates, and through our online tools—espeicallyVOTE411.org. These three priorities stand on their own, but are they are also inextricably intertwined.

I come to the League with an appreciation of what this organization has accomplished over the past 95 years, a respect for the generations of those who worked, day in and day out, to encourage participation in the democratic process, and commitment to not only finish our first century as a strong organization, but to set it up for a successful second hundred years as well.
