Create Change with Your Vote

For over 100 years, the women of The Junior League have put our values into action in Omaha and across the nation. We believe that the empowerment of women is a necessary requirement to create positive, lasting societal change.

There’s no better way to increase the power of women’s voices in decisions that affect society, and to honor the suffragists who won the fight for women’s right to vote 100 years ago, then to register and vote.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 3.

Are you ready to cast your vote?

You have to register to vote before Election Day in Nebraska, and deadlines are quickly approaching, while in Iowa, you may register and vote on Election Day.
