Voter Registration - Watch PSAs

Express Yourself.
Register, Vote and Be Heard!
As part of the Freedom of Expression through Film campaign, the League has begun participation in a series of special events geared toward helping people register to vote or update their registration information. Nearly 1,000 people attended the first two events, and hundreds picked up League publications that will help them participate in the upcoming elections. You can get involved too!

Watch our three new PSAs encouraging viewers to Register, Vote and Be Heard. Featuring Oscar® nominated actress Virginia Madsen, the campaign showcases and encourages women to express themselves in life, politics and beauty – specifically by voting for what they believe in and taking care of their health and skin. Do you have friends and family who still need to register? Send them to!
