The High School Voter Registration Project is a nationwide effort to encourage young people--especially young minorities--to register to vote. Leagues are working in key states to engage and empower young people to participate in our democracy in 2012 and for years to come.
The League of Women Voters is proud to celebrate 91 years of women voting. This Women’s Equality Day, we are grateful for all that our foremothers did to ensure women could actively participate in our political system, and we look forward to all that women will do in the future.
