to Sponsor Nationwide Voter Registration Drive

Clubs, States to Host Local Drives as Part of Effort

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – In anticipation of the upcoming primary elections in many states, the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) is sponsoring a nationwide voter registration drive during the week of May 9-15 and is encouraging its state federations and more than 1,500 clubs to host local drives in their communities as part of the effort.

The NFRW is sponsoring the project as part of its comprehensive campaign program this year and will host a second nationwide voter registration drive during the week of September 12-18.

“We have a golden opportunity to take back America in November, to return to the founding principles of our nation,” NFRW President Sue Lynch says. “It is critical that Americans are registered to vote, and that they exercise this right to voice their opinion at the polls. Since its founding in 1938, the NFRW has been committed to protecting the ballot box, and registering voters is one of many ways we continue to build on this legacy.”

Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation and in several U.S. territories, making it one of the largest women’s political organizations in the country. The grassroots organization recruits and elects Republican candidates, advocates the Party’s philosophy and initiatives, and empowers women in the political process.
