What's in a Name? Help Us Name the Members Site!We have taken the first steps toward a new, dynamic members’ website resource built just for League members and Leaders! The new and improved site – it deserves a good name! Unlike Shakespeare, we don’t think this particular rose will smell as sweet with just any name. So, come share your ideas in the “What’s in a Name?” game.

Utilize these sample get-out-the-vote scripts (email and telephone) to customize and send reminders to your social networks, people you’ve helped register, and other contacts. Research shows that sending these reminders are most effective in the final week or few days leading up to Election Day, but it’s a good idea to start planning your outreach now.
LWVEF urges Leagues to take the following steps to ensure voters are ready for Election Day and are able to overcome any problems they encounter at the polls.

The League is once again teaming up with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) to encourage voter registration and participation among young and first-time voters. Leagues are invited to conduct voter registration at live wrestling events across the country. Check the calendar below for events scheduled near you, and contact Maggie Duncan (Mduncan@lwv.org) if you would like to be connected to the organizers of a scheduled event near you. The calendar will be updated as additional dates become available.
Our voters service work is often the first thing the public thinks of when they hear mention of the League of Women Voters. The basic principle of voters service is nonpartisanship--providing unbiased, factual information to help citizens make their own informed decisions on election day. It is always separate from advocacy.
