The Coronavirus pandemic is impacting every aspect of our daily lives. Not only is our country facing an unprecedented public health and economic crisis, but our democracy is in crisis, too.
Last month we saw a devastating effect of what happens when voters are forced to choose between their health and their vote in the disasterous Wisconsin primary that forced thousands of voters to wait in crowded lines for hours in order to cast their ballot.
Voters should not be forced to choose between their health and their vote.
Call your Senator today at 1-888-415-4527 to ask her or him to pass the funding needed to protect our elections by implementing safe options for voters to cast their ballot.
Reports show that we need at least $4 billion in federal funding for states to implement vote-by-mail programs, expand early voting and online and same-day registration, and to ensure the safety of voters and poll workers.
Voting by mail or absentee ensures that the voters can participate in our elections without having to venture outside during the 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 in order to win funding in time for the November election, we need to demand our elected officials act now by including at least $4 billion in upcoming COVID stimulus bill.
Call your Senator to demand $4 billion in funding to secure our elections in the upcoming stimulus! Dial 1-888-415-4527 to get connected.
We’ve already seen the impact that Coronavirus has had on the primaries. We must ensure that moving forward, voters can safely, securely, and efficiently exercise their right to vote while still protecting our public health.
If we act together, we can win the funding that we need to secure our elections.
