Sign the petition to guarantee that every eligible person age 18 and up is automatically registered to vote
Voting is one of the greatest equalizers we have. Regardless of who you are or what you look like, we are all equal. Because of that we must continue to protect and expand access to the ballot box. Yet, with the 2013 Supreme Court decision in Shelby County v. Holder, our right to vote is under a renewed assault.
Voter ID laws, restrictions on same-day registration and early voting, gerrymandering, aggressive purges of voter rolls, and a multitude of other efforts have made voting more difficult for African-Americans, Latinos, students, and many others. Our Revolution is working to pass the Automatic Voter Registration Act (H.R. 2840) as part of the People's Platform. Add your name to our petition to guarantee that every eligible person age 18 and up is automatically registered to vote.
Our vote is how we hold our elected officials accountable to the policies we want to see passed. It is how we express our opinions in the public space. Policies pushing voter access remain just as important now as they were during the Civil Rights era.
Automatic Voter Registration will add millions of new voters to the rolls, ensuring that people are not barred from voting for want of registering on time. Add your name to our petition calling on Congress to pass H.R. 2840, the Automatic Voter Registration Act.
The struggle will always continue, but through the power of voting we have the opportunity and responsibility to create a nation that values clean water, fresh air, safe neighborhoods, and quality education for everyone.
