Join us in commemorating the passage of the 19th Amendment, on August 26, 1920, one very important step in our democracy's long voting history.  Support our mission  of empowering voters and defending democracy as we continue the fight for voting rights today! 

As Virginia Kase CEO LWVUS said “We mustn’t romanticize the story of the 19th Amendment. The truth is, progress towards a more perfect democracy is often messy, and the 19th Amendment did not break down voting barriers for all women—and even today, there is more work to be done.”

RETURNING CITIZENS DO NOT DESERVE JAIL TIME FOR MISTAKENLY CASTING A VOTE

Promote Public Input Hearings with maps of districts

The House Redistricting Committee has started holding public input hearings for the next round of redistricting.  We must alert our communities about these hearings, so that everyone has the chance to participate in our redistricting process.  Public comments at the hearings will be used to assist the Legislature when it draws district boundaries. Speaking up about your community is critical to ensuring district lines are drawn to keep your community whole and grouped with nearby communities with similar interests.
