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.

"The Fight for the Right to Vote"

This virtual presentation by The League of Women Voters of Indiana County, PA shares the story of the hard-fought campaign waged by American women for the right to vote. In addition, the LWVIC will discuss how the passage of Pennsylvania Act77 of 2019 has made voting more accessible and secure, including mail-in voting procedures.
