Exercising your right to vote on AAUW’s bylaws, Public Policy Program, and leadership is an important part of AAUW membership. Help fellow branch members vote in the AAUW National Election by turning one (or two!) of your meetings into a polling place. Find out how!
Voting opens April 15 and closes June 19, so make sure you schedule your branch voting event between those dates. The branches with the best voter turnout will even win a flag that has been flown over the U.S. Capitol.
