In the 1928 Presidential campaign the League took to radio. In the ten months preceeding the November election, the Voters Service of the League put on a half hour program each week over the National Broadcasting Company. One of the programs was called the Undergraduate Looks at the Campaign. Participants were (left to right) Maxon H. Eddy, (Yale) Elizabeth E. Hughes, (Barnard) Miss Gertrude Ely, (Bryn Mawr) Sarah Jackson, (Vassar) James Rooselvelt, (Harvard)
On Monday, June 11, 2012, Attorney General Eric Holder spoke to the League of Women Voters 50th National Convention in Washington, DC about the challenges to voting rights, protecting all voters and strengthening America's elections systems.
As presidential candidates pounded the campaign trail this week, the Florida League debuted an innovative “Be Ready to Vote” mobile campaign, designed to help inform Florida voters about their current registration status and increase voter turnout at the polls. Through these efforts, mobile phone users are prompted to enter their name and date of birth to check their voter status, update their voter information or have their questions answered by an elections official. What new technologies are you using to reach voters this year?
The leaders you elect make decisions that affect you – your job, health care, energy costs, security and more. League resources, such as www.VOTE411.org and state and local voters’ guides and debates, help you to get registered, get to know the candidates and issues, learn about the rules in your state and get out and vote.
