FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                            

National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) is coming! More than 300 League of Women Voters affiliates nationwide have already signed on to hit the streets and help register voters as part of this year’s National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, September 27. To see what’s being planned, follow #voterregistrationday on social media.


We’ve crunched the numbers: League volunteers in 25 communities registered nearly 15,000 high school and community college students to vote this past spring.

"Politicians have no business standing in the way of our right to vote."


June 25 marks the three-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision to gut key provisions of the Voting Rights Act (VRA). We’ve had three years of bad laws that make voting harder in states all across the country. But there is a solution. Tell Congress to repair and modernize the Voting Rights Act TODAY!
