The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan, political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Celebrating 22 Years of Improved Voter Registration

A couple of quick questions:

1. What was the greatest expansion of voting rights since President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act into law in 1965?
2. What was one of the League of Women Voters' most important victories in our 95-year history?

Here's a hint--both questions have the same answer, and it was signed into law 22 years ago today.

It's the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA)!

Join us in celebrating the 22nd anniversary of its signing, by learning more about this landmark law and the tremendous impact it's made on American democracy.

More than 20 years since it was enacted, the NVRA remains an essential law that protects the integrity of federal elections across the country, while also making voter registration easy and accessible for millions of Americans.

The League was a key player in the passage of the law, which has greatly improved our voter registration work.

Take our quiz to see how much you know about the NVRA!

The vision that drove the passage of NVRA is simple: the more people who vote, the stronger our democracy.

That simple vision is at the heart of everything the League does. It's a vision we'll keep fighting for. For 95 years, we've worked to help new voters engage with their government and to empower people to tackle the most important issues facing our communities. The League continues to be at the forefront of helping voters register to vote, cast their ballot and make sure that vote is counted.

Help us celebrate 22 years of improved voter registration + take our short quiz on the National Voter Registration Act.

Thank you for Making Democracy Work!
