Voter Registration

“...the League of Women Voters of Florida and Rock the Vote will get back to work registering voters, the groups announced Wednesday. ... ‘Failure was never an option in this battle against voter suppression,’ said LWVF President Deirdre Macnab. ‘Now it’s time for our volunteers to work overtime to make up for lost ground.’”

“I count members of the League of Women Voters among my political heroes. Year after year, the League does some of the most important work of our democracy.”

“...we say kudos to the Pompton Lakes League of Women Voters [NJ] for turning out this week and offering Pompton’s students the opportunity register. They signed up 55 students from Pompton and Riverdale who were either 18 or would be 18 by the time of the November general election.”

According to Dr. Carol Weissert, professor of political science at Florida State University: “Since the passage of this bill, third-party voter registration groups such as the Boy Scouts and the League of Women Voters are not registering people. ... These organizations are often responsible for registering many young people and students on college campuses. Because they’re not doing so like they used to, the ability of people to register to vote has lowered.”

“The League [of Women Voters of FL] is challenging the rules in federal court, but in the meantime, few nonpartisan groups aside from NCLR are registering voters in the state. ... Although the new rules have been in effect less than a year, University of Florida political scientist Daniel Smith says it’s clear they're already having an impact.”

“The League of Women Voters of Southeastern Connecticut will kick off a voter registration effort with sessions in New London.”

“Gone will be the arbitrary deadline, according to Cheryl Dunson, president of the League of Women Voters of Connecticut. Instead of having to register seven days before the election, the measure approved by state lawmakers allows for same-day registration.”

“The League of Women Voters updated students about the upcoming elections and registered first-time voters in a visit to campus [Pasadena City College, CA] on Tuesday. Volunteers from the organization set up a small booth at the Quad to help interested passersby...”

“Smackdown Your Vote! is a non-partisan effort supported by World Wrestling Entertainment, League of Women Voters, Rock the Vote, Project Vote Smart... Its purpose is to involve young people in the political process.”

“Maggie Duncan, Elections Program Manager...of the League of Women Voters said, “In 2008, young voters turned out in higher numbers than in the past. However, less than half of all 18 year olds were actually registered to vote during that election, and couldn’t participate.” ... While turning 18 does open a new chapter of one’s life, Duncan and the League of Women Voters want to change the perception that young people may have of voting.”
