LWV California - Higher Education Position

LWV California has published its new position on higher education.

Position in Brief: 

The League of Women Voters of California supports a comprehensive system of public higher education that serves the personal, professional, and occupational goals of all adult Californians and advances the social, economic, and civic needs of the state. To achieve these objectives, public higher education must prioritize access, affordability, equity, and excellence. These priorities require state funding, including student financial aid, that is stable, predictable, sustainable, and timely.

Voting Rights Are Being Restored

  • On Tuesday, July 19, 2016, a federal judge ruled that voters in Wisconsin who do not meet the ID requirements imposed by a stringent new state law cannot be turned away from the polls.

  • And then on Wednesday a federal appeals court ordered changes to a similarly strict voter ID law in Texas after finding that that state’s new law discriminates against persons of color, Hispanics and low-income voters. 

These twin victories mean that millions of voters in Wisconsin and Texas will now have the opportunity to fully participate on Election Day this November.

And they show what’s possible when thousands of League supporters like you join our fight against voting restrictions all over the country.
