We Need Voter Access, Not Voter Suppression! Act Now!

     In June, the legislature passed HB 1300, which was vetoed by the governor. They are back again with a new version of that same bill. HB 1800 is a cynical attempt to make voting harder and more inconvenient, make the system more confusing, change deadlines, roll back voter choice, reduce the availability of drop boxes and limit satellite election offices.

Over One Hundred Years Of History

100 years and counting

League of Women Voters has a 100-year history of striving to make democracy work for all citizens. Its roots are in the suffragist movement, but it quickly moved from the enfranchisement of women to take on the issues of the day – always in a non-partisan framework supported by volunteers.
