The future of our families, communities, and country is at stake. No matter what zip code we live in or the color of our skin, our voices are equal at the ballot box, and we could all use some help making sure our voices are heard. VOTE411.org is the League’s one-stop shop to find all the information you need to cast your ballot. It’s virtual, nonpartisan, and available in both English and Spanish.

VOTE411 gives you personalized information so you’re prepared to vote in every election. Whether it’s local, state, or federal, every election is essential to ensuring our laws and policies reflect the values and beliefs of our communities.
Discover all your voting options, from early voting to absentee and mail-in voting, to voting on Election Day, and make an election plan that fits your life.
