In 2018 our organization reached more voters than ever before. In court rooms from Arizona to Wisconsin to the United States Supreme Court, we are fighting to protect the rights of voters and defend our democracy. In Congress right now the League strongly supports major sweeping legislation in H.R. 1, the For the People Act, that will expand voting rights and improve our elections.
In fact, the House of Representatives is holding its final committee hearing on the For the People Act this very morning, on our birthday!
The For the People Act is a comprehensive democracy reform package that includes restoration of the Voting Rights Act, voter registration modernization, public financing of elections through small donor matching funds, ending partisan gerrymandering and more. The League worked behind the scenes to influence the language of this legislation, including a push to include Same Day Registration.
As we celebrate 99 years of women's suffrage, we will continue to carry on the legacy of that achievement by making sure ALL eligible voters can exercise their rights and championing the expansion of those rights in the For the People Act.
