Ask this Local League a Question
When looking at the now almost complete 2015 state legislative sessions, not only were fewer pieces of anti-voter legislation successful, more pro-voter reforms were introduced and passed!
Last week, I sat with our national president, Elisabeth MacNamara as she connected state League presidents on conference calls to share their experiences with their state’s legislatures.
Over the last week, we saw three big wins for voting rights at the state level. It is, we hope, a bellwether of things to come.
Two months into the 2015 State Legislative sessions and we have seen a groundswell of assaults on voters in many states. League of Women Voters activists have been working around the clock to fight back against these threats as well as to advance opportunities for voters.
Attending the Election Protection convening made me excited for what’s ahead in 2015. I’m looking forward to hearing about the successes that will emerge next year.
