Democracy in Action Across Washington State | News from the League of Women Voters of WA

To Do List

  • Make sure to check the status of your ballot at VoteWA.gov. If it’s been rejected or challenged, make sure to cure your ballot by the deadline (11/29) so that it counts!
  • Follow us on social media! You can find us on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter.
  • This country has waited too long for the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) to become a part of the Constitution. Over 100 years after (some) women gained the right to vote, women and nonbinary people are still not guaranteed equality under the law. Tell your Senators to Support the Equal Rights Amendment.
