With Election 2012 in the rear-view mirror and 2014—and 2016—looming soon, the League of Women Voters recently released our comprehensive Election Improvement Agenda report, which identifies central challenges facing our complex and outdated election system and provides a targeted action plan for overcoming the fallout from recent state-based voter suppression attempts and the Supreme Court ruling gutting the Voting Rights Act.

Drawing upon the insights and localized field reports from the League's nearly 800 state and local volunteer activist teams nationwide, the report provides our plan for building on key successes over the last few years and sets in motion the League’s plans to continue to overcome the unprecedented challenges facing voters. It also lays out the League’s roadmap for taking advantage of practical opportunities to build election systems that meet tomorrow’s needs, including continuing to bring in millions of new voters and advocating for solutions that make our elections free, fair and accessible for all Americans.
