The League of Women Voters Education Fund has registered, educated, and engaged young people through its Youth Voter Registration project since 2010. 

In January – June 2023, 86 Leagues hosted close to 1000 events and registered over 19,000 youth in high schools, community colleges, technical and vocational schools, and other youth-serving areas, like community and recreation centers. And that’s just the 86 Leagues mentioned — our 750+ Leagues nationwide did even more!

Organizing and activating eligible voters has always been one of the goals of the League of Women Voters, a non-partisan group that advocates for voter rights and greater involvement in the democratic process. The league is renewing its efforts to register younger voters — ones who aren’t old enough to vote yet, but will become eligible the moment they turn 18.
