TAKE ACTION LOCALLY
AUTOMATIC VOTER REGISTRATION
TO ALL MASSACHUSETTS RESIDENTS:
We now have the chance to pass some revolutionary legislation that could truly modernize how we vote, impact the 2018 election by raising voter turnout, and help push the national conversation around voting towards some common sense, consensus reforms.
AUTOMATIC VOTER REGISTRATION could end the need to register people before elections; it could enfranchise the nearly 15% of citizens (here in MA) who aren't registered; it significantly lowers costs, and it increases the accuracy of the rolls.
Fight for passage in the Massachusetts legislature for Automatic Voter Registration. Below is a PDF on the law and how to get involved. If you are interested in working on this effort, you can join the Facebook group Lift Every Vote.
