  • Families Belong Together This month, the League engaged in the immigration crisis on several fronts. LWVUS sent a letter to lawmakers on Capitol Hill urging them to vote NO on two pieces of very partisan legislation that do not address the tragic situation or reunite families.

  • Kansas Defeats Proof of Citizenship Law Last week, a federal judge struck down a Kansas law requiring documentary proof of U.S. citizenship to vote.

  • Continuing the Fight for Fair Maps However, Leagues continue to gain momentum on redistricting, including in Pennsylvania where the League is working for a plan 'free from partisan hijacking' and in North Carolina where we could see the next big legal battle on gerrymandering. 

  • Massachusetts House Passes Automatic Voter Registration The League of Women Voters of Massachusetts has advocated for this legislation tirelessly and are optimistic as Automatic Voter Registration moves to the Senate.
