Issues in Maine
The League of Women Voters believes that voting is a fundamental citizen right that must be guaranteed. The League is dedicated to ensuring that all eligible voters have the opportunity to vote. We support measures that enhance the smooth conduct of elections and public confidence in election outcomes. And we work for election measures that increase voter participation and representative outcomes.
We support federal action that protects the rights of voters, expands access to the ballot box, and gets big money out of politics. Currently, we are fighting alongside our sister Leagues for D.C. Statehood and to pass the Freedom to Vote Act.
Maine Students Vote
Maine Students Vote is a network of student and civic leaders that are focused on increasing democratic engagement on college campuses and high schools in Maine. We support campuses and schools in developing voter education materials, organizational action planning, training and mentoring civic captains, and coordinating get-out-the-vote efforts.
The League is fully committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in principle and in practice. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to the organizations’ current and future success in engaging all individuals, households, communities, and policy makers in creating a more perfect democracy.
