Why It Matters
The future of our families, our communities, and our country are at stake. No matter what zip code we live in or the color of our skin, our voices are equal at the ballot box, and we could all use some help making sure our voices are heard. VOTE411.org is the League’s one-stop-shop where you can find all the information you need to cast your ballot. It's virtual, nonpartisan, and available in both English and Spanish.
Even for those of us who've voted before, the process can be confusing. Election rules differ from state to state, and can change between elections. VOTE411 gives you personalized information so you're prepared to cast your vote in every election. Whether it's local, state, or federal, every election is important to ensuring our laws and policies reflect the values and beliefs of our communities.
Discover all your voting options, from early voting to absentee and mail-in voting, to voting on Election Day, and make an election plan that fits your life.

Join one of our 700+ state and local Leagues to get involved with VOTE411.
Despite anti-voter laws, mis- and disinformation, election deniers, and poll worker shortages, the American voters showed up to cast their ballots and make their voices heard.
This is in no small part thanks to Leagues across the country, who worked tirelessly to empower voters during this pivotal midterm season.
The following is a snapshot of LWV’s impact in the 2022 midterm elections as of November 10, 2022. A complete impact report will be added to this page at a future date.

If you need help making a plan, check out Vote411.org, which is run by the grassroots political network League of Women Voters. Jeanette Senecal, the group’s senior director of mission impact, said research shows that if people have a voting plan, then they are more likely to actually get out and vote.
We partnered with TikTok influencers across the fashion, food, and activism spheres to promote VOTE411!
