Pledge to Protect the National Voter Registration Act!
If the opponents of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) have their way, the mission of the League of Women Voters is in jeopardy. The case before the U.S. Supreme Court endangers the League's work of running independent voter registration drives. The NVRA streamlined the numerous state laws that hindered citizen-led registration drives, and a decision against the NVRA would leave the voter registration process vulnerable to new forms of political manipulation. The League and our community partners are often the only effective way for many new voters to get registered to participate in our great democracy.
I believe that our voter registration process should follow uniform national standards, as set by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA). The NVRA prevents states from interfering with citizens’ right to vote.
I believe that restricting voter registration is just one way to limit the right to vote and I support voting rights for all eligible citizens.
I believe that our elections should be free, fair and accessible.
I believe that casting a vote is the one time when all Americans are all equal. Voting allows us to take control of our community and America's future by having an impact on the critical issues and policies debated by our policymakers.
