Our Youth Voter Registration Program kicked off in nearly 40 communities nationwide. League volunteers in 15 states will visit local high schools, community colleges and technical/vocational schools to help young people get registered and ready to vote in 2014.
State and local Leagues throughout the country have been working with government agencies, health care providers and advocates to get the word out to the American people on the Affordable Care Act and its pivotal impact on their lives.
Deirdre Mcnab, president of the League of Women Voters of Florida writes about how the problems at the polls on Election Day 2012 resulted in the recent changes in Florida's election laws, including increased early voting.
In November, millions of Americans spent hours waiting in long lines in order to exercise their right to vote. One solution? Implement better early voting laws. Leagues in Florida and New York are showing us how it's done.
