2020 is a watershed year for voting rights as the Centennial Anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution for women’s suffrage and the 55th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, which expanded voting rights for people of color.
Today, women outnumber men as registered voters, which means, as a group, they have more impact than ever before. However, in 2018, 31.5% of women were not registered to vote, and 45% of eligible women voters did not turn out to vote.
We can change this! It is imperative that all women, including young women and women of color, are informed about the importance of voting to have the government policies they want. The most effective way for them to get this information is from a trusted source.
