September recap

Registering Voters Across the Country (and the Virtual Space!)

Voter registration is more important than ever this year, as COVID-19 has changed the landscape of voting in this election. The wide array of changes to voting policy occurring in response to the coronavirus outbreak makes it even more crucial that voters register or update their registrations as needed well in advance of Election Day. 

From coast to coast on September 22, National Voter Registration Day, League volunteers were out in their communities—and at their computers—for more than 850 events and virtual actions! 

We are doing all we can to register as many people as possible in time for this election. But we are just a few short weeks from registration deadlines, so it is more important than ever to reach out to people in our lives who might not be ready to vote this year and encourage them to register, check their registration, and make a plan to vote.

Rest in Power, Justice Ginsburg

It is with deep and profound sadness that we mourn the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg earlier this month. A fierce advocate for women’s rights and civil rights, Justice Ginsburg’s vision for America transcended race, age, gender, and economic lines. 

She was a beloved champion of justice for all. Justice Ginsburg’s wisdom, determination, and dedication to equal rights embodied the League’s belief in the power of women to create a more perfect democracy.

A SCOTUS Confirmation Must Not Be Rushed

The American people deserve a Supreme Court confirmation process that builds trust in our democracy and ensures an independent judiciary without compromising any more lives. We deserve a Senate that keeps Americans safe during a pandemic that has already claimed over 200,000 lives. It is up to us to hold our Senators accountable. 

Now is not the time to rush a lifetime appointment to the United States Supreme Court. Supreme Court Justices make decisions that impact every American. They require a thorough vetting process that is transparent to the American people. Such a process would be undermined if rushed through.

Contact your Senators and tell them why this confirmation process can’t be rushed, especially while millions of Americans suffer in the pandemic.

VOTE411—Now in Spanish!

This month we launched our award-winning election website VOTE411.org in Spanish, in partnership with the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund.

Providing critical election information on VOTE411 in Spanish has long been a dream of our organization, and we are so proud to provide this ahead of the 2020 general election so Spanish-speaking voters have all the information they need to make a plan to vote.

Through the remaining election season, information on VOTE411.org will be updated daily to reflect any changes to rules or deadlines that voters should follow.
