In 2020 the League of Women Voters (LWVUS) will celebrate its 100th anniversary and the League of Women Voters of Idaho (LWVID) joins more than 700 other local and state chapters to celebrate this historic milestone.
As we look to a vibrant future on the threshold of our next 100 years, the League is excited that our dedicated members across Idaho continue to share the League’s commitment to Making Democracy Work with grassroots activism and excitment.
The League’s historic commitment to register, educate and mobilize voters is not only stronger, but more effective than ever, utilizing such tools as VOTE411.org—a cutting-edge election information website utilized by millions of voters each election cycle.
The League of Women Voters president, Chris Carson, issued the following statement regarding the League’s efforts ahead:
Today we are faced with many challenges that threaten to compromise our democracy. Our efforts to support voting rights and to fight against voter suppression and discrimination at the local, state and national levels have been very successful, and this has been achieved primarily by educating and empowering voters, circulating special petitions, and intervening in several critical court cases.
The League's enduring vitality and resonance comes from its grassroots nature, with members operating at the national, state, and local levels working towards making a difference in their communities across the country.
The League makes a difference at every level of government because of the energy and passion of thousands of members around the country who work together to safeguard our democracy.
