Voting is the most powerful way to have your voice heard, and it is the core of our democracy. The League works all year, every year, to empower all eligible voters to participate in our political system.
This comprehensive training manual has been updated for 2013 and provides a step-by-step guide to help you develop winning high school voter registration programs and encourage young people to register and vote.
To say we’ve been busy this past year would be an understatement. The League’s mission – Making Democracy Work ® – means that we advocate for a democracy in which everyone has their say and every vote is counted.
If you voted this year or helped others in your community cast their votes, thank you! While a few races remain up in the air and final tallies are being counted, many new federal, state and local leaders are preparing for their positions and taking into account your vote and the issues you and millions of Americans weighed in on. Now, we must hold our elected officials accountable by continuing to be in regular contact with them on the issues we care about.
The League was happy to participate in Voto Latino’s Power Summit in sunny San Jose, CA last week. This summit, the fourth of its kind this year, brought together hundreds of emerging Latino leaders for a day of learning, sharing and honest conversations about the role of young Latinos in the future of civic engagement in America.
The League is one of the nation’s largest and most longstanding community based voter registration groups. League volunteers help hundreds of thousands register or update their registration each election year, focusing on reaching underrepresented groups such as young voters, minorities and first-time voters
