The Supreme Court recently ruled on a case around mifepristone, a drug commonly used for medication abortion. Their decision preserves access to one of the most common, effective, and safest forms of abortion.

Voting is a fundamental right. Yet voters with disabilities face persistent barriers to casting a ballot.

Fortunately, these barriers can be challenged under Section 208 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (VRA), which requires that states allow people with disabilities to receive assistance in the voting process. 

“At the League of Women Voters, our goal is to ensure that every person can make their voices heard — in the streets and at the polls. We firmly believe that, like voting, peaceful protest is a constitutional right deeply rooted in American democracy. Both voting and protest are powerful tools for driving change. 

We pulled US Census to get a snapshot of how women are voting. It made one thing clear: the next election is up to women.

See our map showing the power of women voters in 2022 and our graph on registered voters from 2004-2022 by the numbers.

We polled LWV staff on which songs excited them to cast their ballots. 

Voters deserve to hear directly from the candidates campaigning to represent us at the highest level.

See which candidates have filled out our voter guides and demand the rest follow their example!

October 27th is VOTE411's birthday! We're reflecting on some of our favorite moments in the nonpartisan voting guide's history.

The Hyde Amendment prohibits the use of federal funding for most abortions. As a result, most people enrolled in public health programs cannot use their health care coverage to pay for abortion services. This poses a particularly devastating barrier to people living with low incomes, including the more than 16 million women of reproductive age enrolled in Medicaid. 

Ensuring elections are fair and equitable includes maintaining clean and accurate voter rolls. 

The Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) is a nonpartisan membership organization comprised of state election officials from around the United States who have chosen to opt into ERIC, and the states that do so make up ERIC's funding. At this time, 26 states and Washington, DC, are members.
