Protect Our Vote

Protect Our Vote

Forcing voters to vote in person during a pandemic is a threat to public health and the integrity of our elections. 
 
Demand that Congress include $4 billion in the upcoming stimulus bill to secure our vote.
 
Voting by mail or absentee is the easiest way to ensure that the American people can participate in our elections without having to risk exposure during a pandemic. And expanded early voting will ensure that voters that need to vote in person won’t be faced with long lines and massive crowds.
 
But to get these reforms implemented in time for the upcoming election, Congress must pass at least $4 billion in funding in the upcoming COVID stimulus bill.
 
Join concerned Americans throughout the nation to urge Congress to take urgent action to pass the reforms we need to secure our vote.  

  • Call your Senators and ask them to include $4 billion in funding in the upcoming COVID stimulus bill—202-224-3121.
  • Promote the events on social media. Americans should not be forced to risk our lives to vote. On Saturday, May 23 to demand that Congress #ProtectOurVote.
