Voter Registration Dates


Continuing Activities:

  • Advocacy to restore voting rights to all parolees and probationers who are U.S. Citizens, an LWVNJ position. The Action Committee, partnering with the New Jim Crow Project (based on Michelle Alexander's book The New Jim Crow about mass incarceration) and with the ACLU's “Unlock the Vote” initiative, hopes to bring pending bills to the attention of the legislature.
  • Participation in LWVNJ's Lobby Corps
  • Participation in LVWUS's study of Human Trafficking
  • Formation of an Observer Corps. By attending meetings of Building One New Jersey, the local school board or council, or another organization, you may find issues of interest to you that League could support.

Please remember that Voter Service and membership are everyone's responsibility. Carry your LWV tote bag! Display your LWV pin on your purse or shirt! Perhaps someone will notice them and ask about League. Keep some voter registration forms in your car or handbag – just in case! And feel free to organize your own voter registration or debate. Chrystal Schivell will supply materials and guidance.
