Protect Democracy through Empowering Voters

Thank you for joining us as we Get to the Polls Maryland! #GettothePollsMD

This fall, October 1st through November 8th, we're asking everyone to Protect Democracy and Empower Voters by Getting to the Polls! Join us as participants and get pledges for your miles, donate to your friends for the miles they travel, or simply give to the cause and celebrate the 102nd anniversary of the 19th Amendment with us. Every dollar raised will go directly to helping the League of Women Voters of Maryland's efforts to educate Voters and get out the most reliable nonpartisan candidate information possible.

Everyday more and more voters feel overwhelmed by not only misinformation, but lack of real unbiased nonpartisan information they can trust. Our democracy relies on every voter being able to make informed choices, choices that can only be made if they have access to this information and trust its source.

The League of Women Voters of Maryland has a 100-year reputation that stands on the principles of Empowering Voters, Protecting Democracy. Our focus has been to do this through invaluable tools such as Vote411 and our Voter’s Guides. However, as we have learned, we can do more to the spread the word about these tools.

With your support the League will continue to combat disinformation, register voters, and educate residents about elections. Voters who know us take advantage of and express appreciation for what we do. 418,000 Maryland residents received the Voters' Guide or viewed candidate information on VOTE411.org before the primary election. We can do better, but we need to have the resources to get out the word. With the funds we raise we hope rural counties and our cities will have the resources they need to get the Guides into every voter’s hands. Your support allows us to continue the sacred mission of Making Democracy Work.
