On Monday, June 11, 2012, Attorney General Eric Holder spoke to the League of Women Voters 50th National Convention in Washington, DC about the challenges to voting rights, protecting all voters and strengthening America's elections systems.
In the 1928 Presidential campaign the League took to radio. In the ten months preceeding the November election, the Voters Service of the League put on a half hour program each week over the National Broadcasting Company. One of the programs was called the Undergraduate Looks at the Campaign. Participants were (left to right) Maxon H. Eddy, (Yale) Elizabeth E. Hughes, (Barnard) Miss Gertrude Ely, (Bryn Mawr) Sarah Jackson, (Vassar) James Rooselvelt, (Harvard)
The leaders you elect make decisions that affect you – your job, health care, energy costs, security and more. League resources, such as www.VOTE411.org and state and local voters’ guides and debates, help you to get registered, get to know the candidates and issues, learn about the rules in your state and get out and vote.
