Voting is the most powerful way to have your voice heard, and it is the core of our democracy. It’s your chance to stand up for what matters most to you and have an impact on the issues that affect you, your community and your future.
The League works all year, every year, to empower all eligible voters to participate in our political system. Our work especially seeks to aid those from traditionally underrepresented or underserved communities, including first-time voters, non-college youth, new citizens, minorities, and low-income Americans. Hundreds of local volunteer teams work year-round to register, inform and mobilize hundreds of thousands of voters in the lead-up to Election Day. The League also serves millions of voters through VOTE411.org, our one-stop elections information hub.
Registering Voters – League volunteers hold thousands of voter registration drives across the country each year and actively encourage all citizens to vote. We concentrate our registration drives at locations that reach large numbers of unregistered voters, including high schools and community colleges, sporting events, naturalization ceremonies and more. We also register thousands of voters through our online registration tool at VOTE411.org. Since 2012, the League has been the single-largest on-the-ground partner of National Voter Registration Day (NVRD).
