The League of Women Voters’ fourth consecutive Youth Voter Registration Program kicked off this week in nearly 40 communities nationwide. Over the next several months, local League volunteer teams in 15 states will visit local high schools, community colleges and technical/vocational schools in order to help young people get registered and ready to vote in 2014.

The League of Women Voters of the United States joined with the League of Women Voters of Kansas and the League of Women Voters of Arizona to file a brief on the merits of Kobach v. EAC in U.S. District Court.
