Make Independence Day 2014 Count

Posted on Mon, Jul 7, 2014 at 2:55 PM

This Independence Day, honor our nation and democracy by making sure your voter registration is up-to-date in time to participate in this year’s important elections. Then, take a moment to ask your friends and family if they are registered to vote at their current address and have a current state approved photo ID. Call 866-461-8683 or click here for a list of approved forms of ID.

This year, the League of Women Voters of Indiana is committed to making sure voters have the information they need to participate in elections and ensure their votes count. We hope to vastly improve on the low voter turnout that was common across the state in the May primary. Please be sure you register before October 6 so you can vote on November 4. Your voice counts and your vote is your voice.

The first step to having a say on the issues that matter most to you is registering to vote. As we pause this week to mark our nation’s birthday, set aside just a few minutes to check on your registration status, as well as to start learning about the candidates and issues that will be on your ballot. VOTE411.org and LWVIN.org is the place to go for all of your election information throughout 2014!

Every election, whether local, state or federal, is important to ensuring our laws and policies reflect the values and beliefs of all Americans. Celebrate America’s 238th birthday this Independence Day by updating your voter registration or registering to vote for the first time, and committing to vote and participate in the greatest democracy in the world.

Amy Miller

President, League of Women Voters of Indiana
