We're Calling on Congress to Act NOW to Protect our Democracy!

We're Calling on Congress to Act NOW to Protect our Democracy!April 16, 2020

As we navigate the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, we must take measures to protect public health while maintaining the integrity of our electoral system. The Wisconsin primary election demonstrated the fragility of our democracy during this crisis and made it clear that we need safe voting solutions NOW.

The CARES Act of 2020 took a step in the right direction by allocating $400 million in funding to states for election assistance; however, much more is needed. The next COVID-19 relief package must include $4 billion in election assistance, an expansion of vote-by-mail, no-excuse absentee voting, in-person early voting, and online and same-day voter registration in all states and to all voters.

Join us on our Day of Action on April 20th! Write a letter to your Member of Congress to demand more funding and fairer provisions for a safe and fair electoral process.
