Voter Suppression Can Impact Outcomes
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.

Spartanburg is the perfect place to celebrate Independence Day; this is the place where our freedom was secured.
Our Youth Voter Registration Program kicked off in nearly 40 communities nationwide. League volunteers in 15 states will visit local high schools, community colleges and technical/vocational schools to help young people get registered and ready to vote in 2014.
