HELP SECURE OUR VOTER ROLLS
AGAINST TAMPERING — NOW
THIS FALL, our legislators could make Massachusetts the 11th state to adopt Automatic Voter Registration. According to LIFT+EVERY+VOTE, in one bill, we could secure our voter rolls from tampering, correct their inaccuracies, reduce bureaucracy, save money — and, we could register almost all 680,000 new voters.
BENEFITS OF THE BILL (H. 2091 - read it here)
Security: AVR secures our voter rolls, a critical step in protecting the integrity of our elections.
Accuracy: The contact info that State agencies collect is contact far more accurate. AVR securely transfers updates to the Board of Elections monthly, eliminating inaccuracies. In Oregon, AVR eliminated 265,000 inaccurate voter records.
Participation: AVR will remove unnecessary barriers to registration, giving 680,000 eligible Massachusetts residents a voice in our democracy. In Oregon's first election after passing AVR, 42% of the 278,000 newly registered voters voted.
Convenience: AVR shifts our current opt-in model of voter registration to an opt-out one. Eligible Massachusetts voters who interact with state agencies like the RMV will be automatically registered to vote, unless they opt out. And they will stay registered if they move within the state.
Modernization: AVR is more efficient: it reduces bureaucracy and eliminates outdated paper registration forms.
