From the report:

“I did not vote, I didn’t receive my ballot in time!! I am not happy. This is the first time I’ve ever tried to vote this way. I am at high risk for the virus!”

OUR MISSION

Empowering Voters. Defending Democracy.

OUR VISION 

We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge and the confidence to participate.

OUR VALUE 

We believe in the power of women to create a more perfect democracy. 

I think that American women are further along than any other women in the world. But you can’t have peace in a world in which some women or some men or some nations are at different stages of development. There is so much work to be done.

 

Alice Paul

 

Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

Talk is cheap, voting is free; take it to the polls.
