Voting is a non-negotiable function of a democracy.
That’s a simple fact – no spin, no interpretation, no politics. Wherever you sit on the political spectrum, your vote matters.
But, at an historical moment of deep national uncertainty, the United States simply isn’t prepared to handle a safe or equitable 2020 election.
Due to the pandemic, it might not actually be safe to go to a polling station this fall, and polling stations might need to close unexpectedly. And due to systemic racism, many communities of color – which are already disproportionately affected by COVID-19 — don’t have easy access to polling stations to begin with.
So, what can you do to ensure that you and your community members can vote this fall?
Take just 60 seconds to send an automated letter to your legislators asking for $3.6 billion in election safeguards to support absentee ballots, vote-from-home, early voting, new poll workers, and clean polling places.
State and local governments need these funds as soon as possible to effectively implement alternate voting systems, which means the moment to persuade our legislators is right now.
The future of American democracy is in your hands – and you can help secure it in just one minute.
