Through the It’s My Vote campaign, AAUW and the AAUW Action Fund work with state leaders, branches, and coalition partners to host voter registration drives in communities and on college campuses across the county. AAUW members work to cultivate informed voters by sponsoring nonpartisan issue forums, debates, and meet-the-candidate events in their communities. AAUW members also work to ensure that voters know the registration rules in their state, their voting rights, and what to bring to the polls on Election Day.Download the It’s My Vote overview document
