Remove Barriers to Democracy with Automatic Voter Registration
In the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to gut the Voting Rights Act, and anti-voter restrictions on the state level, same day registration is a significant step forward in the modernization of our voting registration process. [Bill #] creates a simple, convenient path to engaging every eligible citizen in our democracy.
This bill would allow citizens to register and vote at the same time on Election Day.
Similar legislation has been in place in a growing number of states since Minnesota, Maine, and Wisconsin passed same day registration in the 1970s. Since then, the reform has proven to consistently boost voter turnout by at least 10 percentage points in states that use it, and states that implement same day registration have experienced immediate increases in voter participation.
We urge our legislators to take a stand for democracy by supporting [Bill #] and bringing same day registration to [State Name].
