Like many Americans, I never know where I’ll be on Election Day. What if I have to travel for work? What if the baby is sick and I can’t make it to the polls? What if I get stuck at the office late and the lines are super long?

Election Day just three weeks away. Voters across the country will participate in important state and local elections on November 6.

This November, Florida voters will be presented with Amendment 4—a ballot amendment that would restore voting rights to people who were convicted of a felony offense, but have since served their sentences, completed parole or probation, and paid restitution (except for cases of murder or sexual assault charges).

Yesterday I watched as my CEO was arrested in an act of civil disobedience in the atrium of the Hart Senate Office Building.

With five short weeks before Election Day, now is the time to get the information you need so that you can participate in the 2018 midterms and the League is here to help! 

On November 6, 2016, I woke up at 5am and headed to a San Francisco museum, preparing myself for a 12-hour shift as a poll worker. While to some, the job of a poll worker may appear mundane and tedious, I was eager and excited the entire 12 hours.  I spent the day witnessing the joy people experience after dropping their ballot in the bin—our democracy in action.

National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) is just around the corner! This year, a record-breaking 400 League of Women Voters affiliates nationwide have already signed up to hit the streets and help register voters as part of National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, September 25. 

After three days of hearings, this is what we’ve learned about Judge Kavanaugh’s record as it relates to our priority issues.

When the 2012 Presidential Election season approached, excitement rushed through me. For the first time in my life, I was eligible to participate in a presidential election. I’d previously voted in local and midterm elections, but the presidential election felt like the ‘real deal’.

September is National Voter Registration Month—and Leagues across the country are working hard to make sure eligible voters are registered to vote.
