Ana, a 2021 graduate of West Windsor-Plainsboro High School South, contributed countless hours as our intern in the summer 2020, creating entries in VOTE411 for the races in six counties that lack a local League. Her job entailed contacting county clerks for emails, inviting over 50 candidates to participate, sending them reminders, and publishing their responses. Ana also helped League members who are not computer-savvy with inputting data on VOTE411. To virtual applause at the League's Annual Meeting in June, Ana opened the certificate and check for $300 and promised to continue promoting the League’s values.

Princeton and Women’s Suffrage:
“The Greatest Question of the Day”
Together, we must build a democracy where everyone participates, every vote is counted, and everyone’s voice is heard. We deserve to have a say in decisions that affect our lives, and to be fairly represented by elected officials who are responsive to our needs in order to make our lives better.
