Aug. 26 marks the 93nd anniversary of the constitutional amendment that granted women the right to vote.
Now is a critical time to do all we can for voters.
Earlier this summer, a key part of the Voting Rights Act (VRA), known as Section 4, was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.
The damage to the VRA can and must be fixed — Congress has the power to act swiftly to restore the effectiveness of the Voting Rights Act. The League of Women Voters needs your help in calling on Congress to repair and restore the VRA. You can help by contacting your congressman and/or U.S. senator.
The anti-voter laws that are cropping up around the country in the wake of the Supreme Court decision will negatively impact all voters — young and old, rich and poor alike. As members of the League of Women Voters of Montrose we are working to make our democracy strong through voter registration drives and educational forums.
