On Wednesday, September 12, LWVUS President Elisabeth Macnamra testified before the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary at a hearing entitled "The Citizens United Court and the Continuing Importance of the Voting Rights Act."

LWVFL and Brennan Center sent a letter to the FL Secretary of State outlining in greater depth the problems with Florida’s illegal systematic purge.

The Flordia League, with the LWVUS and the Brennan Center, filed this amicus brief in support of the US Department of Justice suit challenging the illegal and inaccurate voter purge initiated by the state of Florida.  The National Voter Registration Act bars systematic voter purges within 90 days of an election.

Thank you Mr. Conyers and member of the committee for holding this discussion which will help focus our nation’s attention on voter suppression legislation that is sweeping this country. The right to vote and have your vote counted is the very foundation of our democracy and today it is under attack.

In an amicus curiae brief, the League asked the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals not to grant en banc review of a previous decision invalidating the Arizona proof-of-citizenship requirement for voter registration.

The League filed an amicus brief in League of Women Voters vs. Rokita  before the Indiana Supreme Court.  The brief argues that the Indiana Voter I.D. law burdens the voting rights of some citizens resulting in the unjustifiable disenfranchisement of constitutionally eligible voters.

In an amicus curiae brief, the League asked the Supreme Court to protect fair voting districts by holding that the Voting Rights Act does not require a minority community's size to meet a rigid numerical quota.
