On February 9, late in the afternoon, we surpassed our 25,000 signature goal on the petition asking the White House to appoint new FEC commissioners!
We could not have done this without the support of League members and supporters from across the country. You persevered through what was sometimes a difficult process, and helped push this petition across the finish line!
Reaching our goal is only the first step in this process, and now we must wait for an answer from the President. We will keep you posted on when the response comes out. In the meantime, you can also check out responses to other petitions that have also reached the threshold.
Also, please take a moment to check out the statement from the League on this achievement and take a look at our blog to stay caught up on everything going on. Thank you again for all of your work. YOU really helped to push this petition over the edge!
President, League of Women Voters
