Calling Elected Officials

Fill in the blanks below for a script to use when calling state officials (such as state legislators or the offices of the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, or Secretary of State) and expressing your support for same day registration.

Hello. My name is [Name], from [City/Town]. I’m calling to ask [State Official] to support [Bill #], which will implement same day registration in our state. Of all the voting rights reforms, same day registration has had the most consistent success in increasing voter turnout and engaging thousands of eligible voters. States like Wisconsin and Minnesota that have used same day registration for over 40 years have some of our country's highest voter participation rates, and states that begin using same day registration experience immediate growth in voter turnout. [State Name] must join them in expanding access to our state's democracy and encouraging participation from all citizens in our political process. Thank you.
