Long Overdue

Many of the problems Congress faces are complicated, with nuanced pros and cons. Voter protection laws are not one of those things.

Free and fair elections are essential to a functional democracy — but are only possible when we have basic laws in place to ensure voters are protected.

With Democrats now in control of the House, Congress must finally take action to protect voters by:

  • Improving access to polling places and increasing ballot security;
  • Establishing national automatic voter registration;
  • Putting an end to partisan gerrymandering;
  • Restoring key provisions of the Voting Rights Act.

Sign my petition to tell Congress: Strengthen our democracy. Pass voter protection laws!

We've watched as our elections have been marred by anti-democratic measures, voter intimidation, and suppression. Enough is enough.

This one is simple and long overdue.
