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.
To get involved in voter registration efforts, join one of the 700+ state and local Leagues.
New programming focus will cover countering mis- and disinformation, increasing election participation, advancing voter access, and reforming redistricting
This executive order will expand voter access, strengthen voter registration, and improve election information so that all eligible Americans can participate in our democracy.
LWV of Virginia filed a federal lawsuit asking the court to grant a 48-hour extension for voter registration and to extend in-person early voting due to a system outage.
