Happy National Voter Registration Day!
Adapted from a September 28, 2021 email to League membership from Maggie Bush, Programs and Outreach Director, LWV.
This year, we've seen firsthand how registering people to vote creates a stronger, more representative America.
That’s why thousands of organizations, celebrities, and everyday Americans are spreading the word about the importance of checking your voter registration — and the League of Women Voters is joining them.
We all have one goal in mind: Make sure every American has the opportunity to vote this year.
The League of Women Voters of Champaign County is conducting voter registration events for National Voter Registration Day at Parkland College. Our Youth Outreach and Civic Engagement and Voter Ready teams do a number of registration/election related events throughout the year. If you'd like to help send a note to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The announcement below was adapated from the League of Women Voters of the United Status (LWVUS) announcement.
"The Senate has introduced new legislation, the Freedom to Vote Act which has the power to make our elections more free, fair, and accessible to all. This transformative voting rights bill will protect and expand the right to vote, decrease the influence of money in politics and curb partisan gerrymandering. Your voice is crucial in ensuring the freedom to vote for Americans. Contact your senators* and implore them to vote YES on the Freedom to Vote Act."
Call our Senators to let them know you support the Freedom to Vote Act:
Senator Durbin: (202) 224-2152
Senator Duckworth: (202) 224-2854
