As more states adopt legislation calling for the automatic voter registration of all eligible citizens, the good-government group Common Cause has launched a petition—and it needs your help.
Here’s what you need to know:
Common Cause is asking for support for the The REGISTER and Automatic Voter Registration Acts—federal bills currently before Congress that would require states to automatically register every eligible citizen to vote.
Here’s what Common Cause posted on its website:
In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to gut the Voting Rights Act, and anti-voter restrictions on the state level, we need reforms like automatic voter registration to engage every eligible American in our democracy.
Tell your lawmakers to co-sponsor these two vital bills to bring automatic voter registration nationwide.
You can learn more or sign the petition on the Common Cause website.
