Voting RightsOur Coalition

Our Voting Rights Coalition is made up of the Palm Beach County chapters of the
League of Women Voters, National Council of Jewish Women, and American Civil
Liberties Union, and concerned individuals from across Florida.

League Policy:

The League of Women Voters of the United States believes that voting is a fundamental
citizen right that must be guaranteed.

Focus:

The Voting Rights Coalition works on many fronts to increase voting rights:

  • Let felons vote. We’re working to overcome onerous financial burdens and allow
    Florida felons to register to vote.
  • Protect elections. In partnership with the non-partisan national Election
    Protection Coalition our volunteer serve as poll monitors to assure all voters have
    equal opportunity to vote and make their vote count.

  • Support the VRAA. We support passage of the Voting Rights Advancement Act
    in the U. S. Congress.
  • Educate citizens. We study issues. We educate Floridians about voting rights
    issues in Florida and nationally.
  • Combat voter suppression. We fight to eliminate policies and laws that limit
    access to voting.
