Election Protection Issues

The right to vote is a fundamental principle of our democracy. When more Americans can participate in our elections, the outcome better reflects who we are as a state and as a nation. We work to promote policies and procedures that increase voter turnout and help make our elections more free, fair and accessible. League members interested in working on these issues, contact LWV-Wake Voters Services Director Marian Lewin.
