National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) is coming! More than 225 League of Women Voters affiliates around the country have signed on to hit the streets and help register voters as part of this year’s National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, September 22. For the third straight year, the League is thrilled to be part of this massive celebration of voting and democracy.
Memorial Day is in the rear-view mirror, our days are still getting longer, and millions of young Americans are starting a new chapter in their lives. Graduation is a major milestone after which many young adults move and embark upon new challenges.
The League was pleased to join dozens of voting rights advocates, state and local elections officials, congressional staff and academics at last week’s 2015 Voting and Elections Summit in Washington D.C. The annual event brings together a wide range of stakeholders to discuss the latest innovations and ongoing challenges in election administration and voting systems.
The High School Voter Registration Project is a nationwide effort to encourage young people - especially young minorities - to register to vote. It's a groundbreaking research experiment to measure the effectiveness of voter registration strategies in schools.
