Election Day FAQ
August 6 marks the 51st Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act (VRA). Here at LWVUS, we are taking the day to celebrate our recent voting rights victories and recommit to our important work on voting rights around the country at all levels of government.
June 25 marks the three-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision to gut key provisions of the Voting Rights Act (VRA).

Action on voting rights in 2016 looks very similar to last year. On the whole, states are passing less restrictive election laws, and even better, more and more states are reforming their election process to help voters.
The League of Women Voters of the United States, alongside its Alabama, Georgia and Kansas affiliates, filed a federal lawsuit against the executive director of the Election Assistance Commission to prevent these states from requiring documentary proof-of-citizenship when registering voters using the federal mail voter registration form.
