Getting Out the Vote
Just like in 2012, our It’s My Vote: I Will Be Heard campaign is in full gear with a nationwide effort to register voters, promote voter registration on college campuses, and to urge young women to vote in the 2014 midterm elections. Young women are less likely to vote in midterm elections, and with so many critical issues at stake, we can’t afford for them to stay home. Get involved with the campaign. We have all the resources and materials you’ll need to get out the vote.
Congressional Voting Record for 113th Congress
The Congressional Voting Record provides information about senators’ and representatives’ votes on priority issues for women and girls. Largely viewed as mired in gridlock, the 113th Congress did manage to move forward a couple of AAUW priorities, including the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act, proving once again that advocacy can make a difference. The voting record can be used by members and concerned citizens to hold their members of Congress accountable.
