Empowering Citizens With The League of Women Voters (S5E1)

It’s 2020, which means election year is here. Let’s face it, elections can be overwhelming, from the grandiose national politics to local city policies. There’s just so much to keep track of. But never fear, The League of Women Voters is here!

Established in 1920 after the ratification of the 19th amendment, the League of Women Voters was created to help inform and empower women in the political process. Within the 100 years of the League’s long history the League has established themselves as a non-partisan resource for the voting public. From their helpful Voter’s Guide to the new Vote411 website, the League has everything you need to be an informed voter.

In this episode Kyle & Charlie sit down with the League of Women Voter’s Austin Area about this coming election season, from primaries to the census and the general election. The two chat with Joyce LeBombard (President, Austin Area chapter), Quynhanh Tran (Community Outreach Chair, Austin Area chapter), and Grace Thomas (First Vote! Chair, Austin Area chapter) about the League’s mission, their busy lives during the election and census years, and how you can become a more informed voter this election season.
