Elections are being won by small margins, which only highlights that every vote matters. But, special interests are attempting to block your vote.
The League of Women Voters is committed to stopping special interests and their corporate funders, and to make sure your voice is heard, and your vote is counted. We work tirelessly to fight voter suppression tactics and to protect your right to vote.
As many as 5 million eligible voters could be turned away from the polls in the 2012 elections. Help us fight back against voter suppression schemes pushed by special interests and deep pocketed corporate funders.
Each time corporate special interests propose another barrier to voting, the League is there to fight it. These special interests know that when fewer people exercise their right to vote, they are better able to manipulate the outcome in their favor.
But we stand up to these well-funded special interests! We fight state by state to overturn or oppose discriminatory anti-voter laws. We’ve led petition drives to get anti-voter legislation before the voters through ballot measures, we’ve challenged these tactics in court, and we’ve defeated them through the legislative process.
Help us preserve your right to vote by supporting the League of Women Voters today!
We are the most trusted voice, with effective and passionate volunteers working to involve more citizens in elections and advocate for a government that puts people, not special interests, first.
For over 90 years, the League of Women Voters has fought to educate and engage Americans. The League strives to expand participation and give a voice to all Americans. We believe that people form the basis of a strong democracy.
Will you help us make democracy work for all citizens?
President, League of Women Voters
