Why It Matters
Every eligible voter should have a fair and equal opportunity to register to vote and to cast their ballot. Millions of Americans miss the opportunity to vote because they don’t know how to register or they miss their state’s deadline.
What We're Doing
As the nation’s largest and longest-standing grassroots voter registration organization, our volunteers register hundreds of thousands of voters and host community voter registration drives across the country each year. We concentrate our registration drives at locations that reach large numbers of unregistered voters, including high schools and community colleges, transit hubs, and naturalization ceremonies. Each year, we also help tens of thousands of Americans register online at VOTE411.org.
Demand that your senators support bills that make elections accessible to all Americans, such as the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act

To get involved in voter registration efforts, join one of the 700+ state and local Leagues.
The League of Women Voters of the United States submitted comments to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in response to its solicitation of comments on Healthy People 2030 Objectives. The League recommends next steps that the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) can take to further progress toward the new core objective of increasing the proportion of the voting-age citizens who vote.
LWV Florida filed a federal lawsuit challenging a state law that imposed severe restrictions on voter registration activities by the League and its partners
LWV Kansas sued in state court to overturn several laws restricting voter education, mailing advance ballot applications, delivering advance ballots, and tightening signature match requirements
