"Politicians have no business standing in the way of our right to vote."
"We will appeal to protect the critical rights of voters in these three states, especially during this election year,” said Chris Carson, president of the League of Women Voters U.S.
League set agenda for the next biennium and elected unanimously Chris Carson of Burbank, California as the organization's 19th national president.
“Our members are fanning out across the Capitol to tell their elected representatives that it is well past time to right this wrong. We need them to pass the Voting Rights Advancement Act (VRAA),” President MacNamara said.
“We are disappointed that the Senate Democrats’ campaign finance proposal, announced today, falls short of what is needed to keep big money from dominating our politics,” said President MacNamara.
“This decision sends a dangerous signal to voters across the country, one the League is prepared to fight at every opportunity,” said President MacNamara.
“We are pleased that the images of several of the inspirational leaders who fought to secure the right to vote for women will grace our nation's currency," said President MacNamara.
“Big money, secret money, is taking over our elections while the FEC sits on its hands. It is time for a change – a big change,” said President MacNamara.
