The League was founded on the principle that everyone has the right to vote, and encourages all citizens to exercise that right. Find out everything you need to register to vote, and to the polls.


The League has information to help you understand important issues of the day through our forums on topics such as climate change, health care and redistricting. We also sponsor candidate debates to help you decide which candidates deserve your vote.


Volunteer with the League! We have opportunities to register voters and to help get underrepresented citizens to the polls. Help us provide the programs and events that help the League make democracy happen.
