As the nation’s largest and longest-standing grassroots voter registration organization, we work year-round to make sure all eligible Americans—especially first-time voters, non-college youth, new citizens, communities of color, and low-income Americans—have the opportunity to register and vote.
Maggie Bush, the Program and Outreach Director from the League of Women Voters talks to the Union Edge about National Voter Registration Day, which is coming up on September 26.
The League supports automatic voter registration. In Massachusetts, League Executive Director Meryl Kessler calls it, “the next logical step in the modernization of the electoral process”.
A fixture in the voter engagement field for over 90 years, the League of Women Voters works to register and turn out new communities of voters, with the long-term aim of expanding the American electorate and ensuring a democracy that reflects the true diversity of our communities.
The High School Voter Registration Project is a nationwide effort to encourage young people--especially young minorities--to register to vote.
Our volunteers have been out in force, working with passionate students to register new voters at their school walkouts, marches, and other events across the country.
