Tori Wenger Educates on Preparing for the 2024 Vote

Tori Wenger (’19), Attorney for the Prepared to Vote and Voting Rights Defender Project at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, published a guide on preparing for the 2024 vote, providing insights on affirmative steps to protect and expand access to democracy (“How Voters and Civil Rights Advocates Can Prepare for the Upcoming Election Season,” LDF, Nov. 9). Citing her organization’s commitment to monitoring issues voters may face in the upcoming election, Tori noted, “The path to the ballot box in 2024 may seem riddled with roadblocks — but it doesn’t have to be. Observations of issues from recent election cycles equip voting rights advocates with the tools needed to clear barriers to voting and educate voters on the simple steps they can take to ensure their ballots can be cast and counted.” Encouraging broader participation in voter outreach, she added, “[E]veryone can take simple steps to build a more resilient democracy. . . . Think outside the box, recruit some friends, and then get active! Whichever path you choose, there are ways to exercise your power before, on, and beyond Election Day. The outcomes in 2024 will be decided by those who make a plan.”
