With a high-stakes presidential election, several critical cases before the Supreme Court, and anti-voter laws on the rise across, 2024 is set to be a pivotal year for our democracy. Here are a few events we’re marking on our calendars as we gear up for the changes ahead.

Caucuses "are meetings run by political parties that are held at the county, district, or precinct level." In the months before a presidential election, several states hold caucuses where candidates vie for party support. Caucus participants then vote for the candidates they support; the number of votes each candidate receives determines how many party “delegates” will be sent to support that candidate at the party’s convention.

From Supreme Court decisions to voting rights legislation, 2023 was a busy year for our democracy. But how closely were you paying attention? 

In 2023, Leagues across the US worked diligently to achieve a remarkable number of wins in litigation, voter registration, civic engagement and education, and more. Below are 6 of our greatest accomplishments.

It's up to us to make sure everyone has the information and ability to cast their vote! 

Here are five ways you can empower voters and defend democracy through volunteer work. 

You've cast your vote and possibly received the results  — so what do you do now to defend democracy? Our advocacy, litigation, and voting rights teams have some tips.

Every October, more than a million people vote in one of the most anticipated elections of the year: Fat Bear Week (FBW).

FBW is a brilliant campaign in terms of engaging and educating people worldwide about the majestic brown bear. But in addition to teaching us about bears, it teaches us a lot about how we vote.

Our history is replete with people with disabilities who paved the way for a stronger, more representative democracy — like Judy Heumann, Sojourner Truth, Senator Tammy Duckworth, Claudia Gordan, Harriet Tubman, Joyce Ardell Jackson, and Vilissa Thompson, to name a few. 

Yet we also know that anti-voter laws and regulations disproportionately impact people with disabilities, and the fight to make the vote more accessible is ongoing. 

In this blog, we’ll highlight some of our favorite voting rights activists who were also women with disabilities. Then, we’ll examine how ability and voting rights intersect today.
