the November 2014 election, only 31% of eligible Californians voted and young
people and people of color continued to be underrepresented. Although many
factors contribute to low voter turnout, we believe that voter information is
an important tool to engage and expand the electorate.
The League of Women Voters of California is on the front lines fighting for voting rights in our state. Despite the growing influence of money in politics across the country, we’re making progress here in California.
Only 30% of eligible Californians voted in the November election. If this number alarms you, then join with the League of Women Voters of California to be a force for change. Let’s get more voters to the polls in 2016—our democracy depends on it!
Do you want strong leadership in California? When you make a gift to the League of Women Voters of California, you help us empower and train leaders in every area of our democracy—whether educating voters, advocating for transparency in government, or tackling the most challenging social and economic issues of the day.
