WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today the League of Women Voters Education Fund launched the award-winning election website VOTE411.org in Spanish, in partnership with the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund.
“Providing the critical election information on VOTE411 in Spanish has long been a dream of our organization, and we are so proud to work with NALEO Educational Fund to provide this ahead of the 2020 general election,” said Jeanette Senecal, Senior Director of Mission Impact for the League of Women Voters Education Fund. “VOTE411 is expected to reach approximately 10 million people in the United States through Election Day on November 3, and having the resources all in Spanish makes the information even more accessible.”
Since 2006, VOTE411 has provided registration deadlines and tools, absentee and early voting information, polling place locations, voting hours, candidate information, and more. In 2019 the League of Women Voters launched the newly redesigned VOTE411.org, with the mission to serve every voter in America with critical election information in 2020.
“With so many changes to election information this cycle, VOTE411 is the best tool to keep voters updated on the changes and to counter misinformation about elections,” said Alma Couverthie, National Organizing Director of the League of Women Voters. “Election rules differ by state and jurisdiction, and we want Spanish-speaking voters to have all the information at their fingertips as they prepare to safely cast their ballots.”
Already in 2020, VOTE411 has served more than two million users and provided state-by-state primary alerts throughout the season with changes due to COVID-19.
“NALEO Educational Fund is proud to partner with the League of Women Voters on the launch of VOTE411 in Spanish,” said Raul Preciado, Ve y Vota Campaign Manager at NALEO Educational Fund. “With 14.6 million Latinos expected to cast a ballot this November, this is a crucial step towards ensuring all Latinos have access to bilingual voting information.”
Through the remaining election season, information on VOTE411.org will be updated daily to reflect any changes to rules or deadlines that voters should follow.
