The national elections are just over a month away.

The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) supports voting rights and is part of a coalition pressing Congress to restore voting rights dismantled by a U.S. Supreme Court ruling. NASW is also part of a Rock the Vote voter registration campaign with Social Work Helper Magazine, the American Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare, and the Council on Social Work Education. That campaign ends September 30.
