Voter registration is one of the important things that the League of Women Voters does. We often go to events where groups of people are gathered to encourage people to register to vote or to update their registration. If you have moved within the county or within the state, an update to your address is required to ensure you are voting in the correct districts.

If you are holding an event where voter registration activities would be appropriate, please notify us and we will be happy to participate.
