Our League volunteers spent over 180,000 hours working to register, inform, and protect voters. Check out our impact in the 2018 midterm elections.

After the 2018 election, the outgoing WI legislature called a special session and passed several bills aimed at undermining the new governor. LWVWI sued, contending that the session was unconstitutional.

U.S. House leadership unveiled a democracy reform bill, HR1 (the For the People Act), that will make elections fairer and put power back in the hands of the American people. 

After the election, I joined fellow members of the League of Women Voters of DC to register new voters at a naturalization ceremony. It was my first time at one; I was uncertain of what to expect.
