Elections

We are all equal at the ballot box, but only if we vote. We engage millions of voters every year ensuring Americans have the information they need to participate in elections that determine our future.

Why it matters and what we are doing

Elections impact every aspect of our lives, and we all need to weigh in. Through our award-winning voter education programs, our volunteers equip millions of voters with essential information about the election process, provide trusted and sought-after information about candidates and issues on federal, state and local ballots. Every year we host thousands of community events to mobilize and help voters participate as well as hundreds of debates and forums nationwide for voters to hear directly from the candidates.

The work we do in voter service and voter education is evidence of how vital the League is.

Our Priorities

Educating Voters

We host hundreds of events and programs every year to educate voters about candidates in thousands of federal, state and local races, as well as distribute millions of educational materials about state and local elections. 

VOTE411

VOTE411.org is a "one-stop-shop" for election related information. This innovative voter resource provides nonpartisan information to the public with both general and state-specific information. 

Increasing Voter Registration

As the nation’s largest and longest-standing grassroots voter registration organization, we work year-round to make sure all eligible Americans—especially first-time voters, non-college youth, new citizens, communities of color, and low-income Americans—have the opportunity to register and vote.
