"I Want to Vote" Project gives voters a say on early voting options


The League of Women Voters of Ohio (LWVO) has launched a survey to invite Ohio voters to have their say in the debate over early voting. We're calling it the "I Want to Vote" project. You can read the press release here, and you can take the survey at http://bit.ly/iwanttovoteohio.   

The debate over early voting isn't going away any time soon, and LWVO wants to gather stories from voters about when they want to be able to vote and why.

Please help by sharing this with your networks, posting on your website, and sharing on social media. 


Announcing the
Mame Reiley Fellowship
Begins Spring 2015
Applications Due: October 31, 2014

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is proud to announce the creation of the Mame Reiley Fellowship. This unique fellowship provides hardworking, passionate future women leaders with the opportunity to gain invaluable, hands-on experience in Democratic politics.

The Mame Reiley Fellow will work with the Democratic Women’s Alliance and must be recommended by a member of the DNC Women’s Caucus, the Association of State Democratic Chairs, the National Federation of Democratic Women, or Women’s Leadership Forum. 

Mame Reiley was a leader devoted to the Democratic Party and passionate about advancing women as leaders of our Party and to elected office. She represented the best of grassroots activism and her work ethic, commitment and dedication are all traits of strong, women leaders that we hope a DWA Mame Reiley Fellow will take away from her experience at the DNC.

The Democratic Women's Alliance is the latest chapter in the Democratic Party’s long commitment to activating more women. DWA seeks to empower Democratic women to MOBILIZE, ENGAGE, and TRAIN each other and continue the conversation about women voters between elections.
