League of Women Voters to meet in Washington

Next Friday, League of Women Voters’ leaders from across the country will gather in Washington, DC, for our 50th National Convention! As we prepare for five busy days of discussions and decisions, the issues that concern us in this 2012 presidential election year are foremost in our minds. Witness our Convention theme – Power the Vote: Imagine, Commit, Act!

We launched our Power the Vote initiative earlier this year and are hard at work to ensure all voters are protected and prepared to participate fully in this year’s elections across the nation as you can see below. Also this month, because the flood of money in elections is drowning out deliberate discussion, we began airing new radio ads in Maine and Tennessee to urge U.S. Senators in those states to help close the floodgates. On the clean air front, your comments to the EPA helped surpass the one million mark on its proposed new industrial carbon rule! Read about these issues and much more below to find out what’s been happening in May. And let us know what you’ve been doing by connecting with us on Facebook and Twitter.
