Now that the celebration of the 19th amendment is winding down (though you can still learn more about the suffrage movement – see previous post) our attention turns to exercising the right so many women fought so hard for. Voting is a crucial way for citizens to express their opinions and impact their local, state and national politics. If there is one thing we can take away from the story of the fight for women’s suffrage it is that the right to vote should not taken for granted!

There are many ways to be an informed voter. The League of Women Voters of Evanston (and the state and national organizations) are great sources of information about the voting process and issues voters need to decide on. A guide to the 2020 election created by the Evanston league is below as well as their newsletter. Their website will have the most updated information.
