The League joined the ACLU and Demos on a federal register notice from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

WASHINGTON — The League of Women Voters is proud to collaborate with major brands to encourage voter engagement and civic empowerment in 2024. The 104-year-old grassroots civic organization will join forces with Macy’s Inc. (which includes Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, and Bluemercury), Lyft, and Microsoft to promote active participation in the democratic process to both employees and consumers, providing nonpartisan election information, and registering and mobilizing voters.  

A coalition of civil rights, voting rights and disability rights organizations suedto block Alabama’s recently enacted Senate Bill 1 (SB1).

And while we’ve come a long way since February 14, 1920, we are still far from finished in this fight for true and expansive voting rights. For over a century and counting, the League of Women Voters has been working toward stronger democracy where all Wisconsinites are able and empowered to exercise their right to vote.

On August 18, 1920, The United States Congress ratified the 19th Amendment, and upwards of 20 million women gained the right to vote.

But it was six months before that monumental act when a group of forward-thinking former suffragettes came together to form the League of Women Voters, with the goal of helping to prepare millions of women to wield their nascent political power.

When I look at everything people have done this year to protect and uplift every person’s voice, I find so much to be thankful for. 

This is for the election workers, voters, and League volunteers who empowered voters and defended democracy this year.
