Resources to Help You and Your Friends Get Ready to Vote: Message from Andrea

Dear Supporter,

Ninety-six years ago during the final push for women's suffrage, Carrie Chapman Catt + the League of Women Voters' founder + called upon our emerging organization to "finish the fight," the fight to ensure that our democracy is truly a government of, by and for all the people. In 2016, we will be continuing this charge by helping to register and educate millions of Americans in advance of Election Day + Tuesday, November 8.

In honor of our 96th anniversary as well as Presidents' Day, we are calling upon our supporters to help us in Making Democracy Work and bringing new voters into our electoral process this year.
