In 2015-2016, the League of Women Voters diligently worked to strengthen and deepen democracy in Alabama. We sought to grow the number of registered voters, make them informed and active voters, and assure that their vote would count. The LWVAL has created a short one-minute video, “LWVAL Grows Empowers and Protects the Vote,” to highlight the several projects the Alabama state and local leagues undertook and methods they used to make that happen.
Advocating for excellent K-12 education has been and is a significant part of the work of Arkansas Leagues since the desegregation efforts of the 1950s. Today, we are facing attempts by politicians and businesses to establish publicly funded, parallel school districts by the establishment of charter schools. These schools are in direct competition with public schools but do not answer to the citizens of the communities where they are established. There are no locally elected school boards governing charters. We are banding together with parents, teachers, community organizations, and faith-based groups to take back our schools.
In other work, Leagues around Arkansas have joined with other organization such as AAUW and held several voter registration drives, have continued work on prison reforms, and mental health services.

Gerrymandering - the practice of drawing election district lines (such as for Congress or a state legislature) to give an artificial advantage to one party. The following “recipe” is intended to illustrate (and make fun of) this practice.
For election 2016, the League of Women Voters of Massachusetts is launching a multi-pronged voter education and engagement initiative: MOVE 2016 (Massachusetts Voter Engagement 2016), designed to provide voters throughout the Commonwealth with resources to encourage participation and informed choice in the 2016 election. Our goal is to “MOVE the needle” by substantially increasing voter registration and turnout rates in the Commonwealth. We are grateful to the Lincoln and Therese Filene Foundation, the Salem Five Charitable Foundation, and an anonymous League member for financial support for this program. More information about MOVE 2016 can be found here: https://lwvma.org/move-2016-join-the-movement/
