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

The League of Women Voters of Oxford partnered with the Howe Writing Center to “Take Action for Democracy” on Oct. 25. The first floor space hosted a casual meet and greet with a handful of tables scattered around the room, offering information on registering to vote, understanding the ballot, calling representatives and writing and submitting op-eds.
The League of Women Voters Education Fund has registered, educated, and engaged young people through its Youth Voter Registration project since 2010.
In January – June 2023, 86 Leagues hosted close to 1000 events and registered over 19,000 youth in high schools, community colleges, technical and vocational schools, and other youth-serving areas, like community and recreation centers. And that’s just the 86 Leagues mentioned — our 750+ Leagues nationwide did even more!
