On this day in 1920, the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote became law. In the 92 years since, the League of Women Voters has worked tirelessly to educate and mobilize new voters. We remain fiercely committed to that mission.
That’s why today, on Women’s Equality Day, we’re proud to share with you our new and improved VOTE411.org website!
Use VOTE411.org to access your personalized voting guide that will include up-to-date information you need to cast your ballot, including your polling place, and important deadlines to remember.
The November election may be the most important election of our lifetime. This election really isn’t about the day-to-day battles between candidates. It’s about voters, like you. It will impact you and the people in your life. It’s about your job, your health, your community, your future. Voting is your chance to stand up for what you believe in. Make sure your family and friends do, too.
Since 2006, VOTE411.org has provided millions of voters with information about the election process, including information directly from the candidates regarding their vision for America’s future, absentee and early voting options, registration deadlines, ID requirements, and important updates regarding any changes you can expect to see at the polls this year.
It seems like we’re in a non-stop election cycle. We’ve been talking about the 2012 presidential campaign since the day after the 2008 election, but when we go to the polls in November there will be more than just residency in the Oval Office on the line. It’s about jobs, the environment, health care and educating our future voters. Voting is an important way to have an impact on these critical issues and the policies that will be debated in the coming years.
Rooted in the movement that made the victory on August 26, 1920 possible, the League of Women Voters has always been committed to educating and turning out voters, and we’re not stopping now. Make sure to join with your neighbors in voting on Election Day, and thank you for making democracy work.
President, League of Women Voters
