PROTECT VOTING

HELP SECURE OUR VOTER ROLLS
AGAINST TAMPERING — NOW  

The MA Elections Modernization Coalition, led by Common Cause and assisted by  our own local group, Lift+Every+Vote, needs our help to pass Automatic Voter Registration.  In one bill, we could secure our voter rolls from tampering, correct their many inaccuracies, save money, cut down bureaucracy, and:

H.2091 could register almost 700,000 eligible voters in MA.

AVR is the solution to voter-fraud based voter suppression.  It makes the rolls accurate and it makes sure almost every eligible voter is registered.  It's the solution to the alternate universe situation on voter registration, where one side claims massive voter fraud, the other, massive voter suppression.  It's so successful that an EAC commissioner has now begun to attack it on specious grounds.  

WE NEED TO PASS AVR IN MA, NOW, TO PUSH BACK ON THIS NATIONAL CONVERSATION.  IT'S A COMMON SENSE SOLUTION THAT WORKS.  

LET'S HELP MA BECOME THE 11TH STATE TO PASS AVR AND GET IT IMPLEMENTED BEFORE THE 2020 ELECTIONS!

"The 2016 election has motivated a groundswell of women to run.

It’s not just Trump’s victory motivating women to run, Schriock said. It’s also Clinton’s loss. “I met so many women before the election with tears in their eyes about how important this victory was going to be,” she said. When that victory didn’t materialize, their initial shock and fear of a Trump presidency turned to action."
