Every time I remember that this is National Volunteer Week, I break into a smile. I am lucky to come to work every day to support women & men around the country who are dedicating their free time to helping voters participate in our democracy.
I’ve been a proud League of Women Voters staffer and a local volunteer since 2006. In my work I’ve had the opportunity to work with hundreds of inspiring League volunteers and seen large-scale voter empowerment efforts come to life.
Each state has focused some of their energy on voting rights and elections – 2230 bills relating to elections, both good and bad, have been introduced in state legislatures across the country since January.
