But that reason for not voting deals with the population who did not even register to do so, a citizen segment having nothing to do with the 142 million under the microscope of the paragraph. We have a right to expect better reporting from the authors, leaders in the League of Women Voters League of Women Voters, voluntary public service organization of U.S. citizens. Organized in 1920 in Chicago as an outgrowth of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, it had as its original nucleus the leaders of the latter organization. organization.
