Voting Rights Laws

Voting Rights Laws

We are at the forefront of the most important federal and state voting rights cases around the country. We actively oppose discriminatory voter photo ID laws, fight against attacks voter registration process and hold lawmakers accountable when they try to institute last-minute Election Day barriers. We work year-round to combat voter suppression through advocacy, grassroots organizing, legal action and public education.

The League of Women Voters of Sample Basic Site encourages informed and active participation in government. We educate voters through forums and discussions but we never support candidates or political parties. We work to influence public policy through advocacy on issues of importance to our members.

The PA Department of State has mandated that all counties in PA replace older voting machines by 2020 with new machines with auditable paper records. The Danaher voting machines which Bucks County has used for the last 13 years are past due for replacement. But more importantly, they do not provide a paper record that can be used for recounts.
