Morgan Murray
Voter Engagement Programs Manager

Morgan Murray is the voter engagement programs manager for the League of Women Voters.

In this role, she is responsible for overseeing pass-through grant projects and providing support to state and local Leagues across the county on voter registration, GOTV, pro-democracy, and other election-related initiatives.

Morgan holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in the Spanish Language from the University of Iowa. During her college years and beyond, Morgan volunteered with her local League of Women Voters, helping register, educate, and provide outreach opportunities. This spearheaded her interest in voter engagement work.

After graduating, she served as an AmeriCorps, providing education and job support to historically marginalized community members and formerly incarcerated people. Morgan later served in Peace Corps in the Dominican Republic, collaborating with rural communities to advance youth and community development initiatives. Passionate about service and engagement, partnerships, and creating more inclusive and equitable spaces, Morgan enjoys working at the national level with local and state leagues.

Morgan is originally from Des Moines, Iowa. In her free time, Morgan can be found trying a new recipe, watching reality tv, or jogging.

The League of Women Voters Education Fund has registered, educated, and engaged young people through its Youth Voter Registration project since 2010. 

In January – June 2023, 86 Leagues hosted close to 1000 events and registered over 19,000 youth in high schools, community colleges, technical and vocational schools, and other youth-serving areas, like community and recreation centers. And that’s just the 86 Leagues mentioned — our 750+ Leagues nationwide did even more! 

Almost 1 million immigrants became naturalized citizens in 2022, expanding the electorate significantly. During that time, 31 League volunteer teams across the country reported attending close to 800 naturalization ceremonies and registering over 37,000 New Americans to participate in our democracy — this represents just a small portion of our 750+ Leagues’ impact. 

The League of Women Voters Education Fund (LWVEF) has tapped into the power of young people through its Youth Voter Registration project since 2010. In the spring of 2022 alone, 87 League volunteer teams across the country hosted close to 900 events and registered 22,406 youth in high schools, technical schools, community colleges, youth shelters, and at community events like protests, rallies, and festivals.
