Washington, DC – On Tuesday, millions of Americans voted in pivotal state and local elections across the country. The League of Women Voters, the country's oldest voting rights organization, reached over two million voters on VOTE411.org, the most ever for a non-federal election cycle.
Throughout the year, Leagues across the country hosted tens of thousands of voter registration drives, informative town hall meetings, candidate debates and forums, and educational workshops on important civic issues. These initiatives not only helped to raise awareness but also encouraged more individuals to exercise their right to vote. In 2023, the League also recruited over 2,000 people interested in supporting their communities as poll workers.
Throughout 2023, the League of Women Voters provided essential information on an impressive 20,000 races and 46,000 candidates through its nonpartisan voter education website, VOTE411.org, empowering voters with all the information they need to make informed decisions.
“Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy, and we are incredibly proud to serve the public as a trusted resource for voters, especially as voters face disinformation campaigns,” said Jeanette Senecal, senior director of Mission Impact for the League of Women Voters of the United States. "The League worked diligently to engage communities and provide voters with the information they needed to decide who would best represent them. Reaching over two million voters through VOTE411.org is a testament to our dedication to civic engagement and voters’ commitment to ensuring their voices were heard during these important state and local elections."
The League remains committed to fostering civic participation and will continue its efforts to reach even more voters in the future. Visit VOTE411.org to access the comprehensive voter information database and prepare for the upcoming elections in 2024.
