On Tuesday, April 14, 2020 the Declaration for American Democracy Coalition will kick-off a national call-in campaign to compel Congress to Protect Our Vote. In the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic, Congress must institute reforms that will allow voters to safely cast their ballot and provide states the $4 billion in funding they need to run safe and secure elections.
On April 7th, voters in Wisconsin were forced to choose between protecting their health and participating in our Democracy. This cannot happen again.
Call your Senators today at 1-888-415-4527 to ask them to include $4 billion in funding to secure our elections in the next stimulus package.
This critical funding should be used by states to increase vote-by-mail, expand early voting and online and same-day registration, and to ensure the safety of voters and poll workers, amongst others reforms.
Voters should not have to choose between their health and their vote. 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. In order to win funding in time for the November election, we need to demand our elected officials act now!
