Empowering Voters. Defending Democracy.

The For the People Act (S1) is the democracy reform bill that includes reforms for which the League has been advocating for decades. This Federal legislation will put power back into the hands of American voters by removing barriers to voting, restoring the ballot to formerly incarcerated individuals, and modernizing future elections. It is up to us to protect our democracy!

Contact your U. S. Senators and ask them to champion the For the People Act!

The For the People Act will fundamentally strengthen our democratic system by restoring the Voting Rights Act, modernizing our voter registration system, establishing clear criteria and transparency to prevent gerrymandering, and making campaign contributions transparent. As an organization dedicated to empowering voters
and defending democracy, the League of Women Voters is one of the original supporters of the For the People Act.

Day and night, League members have fought for this bill, and now we are just one critical step away from making history. It is long past time to return power back to the hands of the American people. Let your Senators know how important this reform package is to you and to the future of our democracy.
