The nonpartisan nonprofit watchdog organization, Common Cause, is asking for your signature for a petition to do just that—make automatic voter registration a thing nationwide.
Here’s what Common Cause has to say about the initiative:
The REGISTER and Automatic Voter Registration Acts, federal bills before Congress right now, would require states to automatically register every eligible citizen to vote.
Oregon and California have already taken steps towards that, and they’re leading the country in helping to ensure that voting is free, fair, and accessible.
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.
