This year, League volunteers will be out in force in over 25 communities across 15 states as part of our Youth Voter Registration program, with the goal of holding voter registration events in more than 200 high schools and community/vocational schools.
The League of Women Voters North Carolina and Democracy North Carolina worked together to conduct interviews across the state with local board of elections officials to get an on-the-ground view of voting administration resources and procedures in order to ensure smooth and efficient voting processes and procedures and better serve voters.
Arguments began on a lawsuit that will determine if the North Carolina legislature discriminated in passing the country's most restrictive voting law, and if the changes to voter registration and early voting violate the Constitution or the Voting Rights Act.
As a pediatric nurse practitioner, I know first-hand the impact rural hospitals can have on a community. To bring attention to the support rural hospitals need, I decided to join a 283-mile annual walk from North Carolina to Washington, D.C.
While the League continues to oppose new restrictions on registration and voting, we also continue to work with registrars and administrators dedicated to making elections about voters and their ability to weigh, and not about which party wins or loses.
