This petition had 52 supporters
We desperately need to reinvigorate the democratic values, norms, and procedures of our Republic so that more people can and do vote in elections. Voter turnout in the 2016 election was the lowest in two decades and lags well behind other developed countries. In fact, we don't even crack the Top 25! This needs to change now!! Sign this petition to present to our representatives in Congress to pass legislation to do the following:
- Change Election Day to Saturday
- Expand Early Voting
- Mandate more Vote By Mail
- Automatic Voter Registration
- Loosen Voter ID laws
- Reform convicted criminal voting restrictions
Sen. Bernie Sanders introduced the Democracy Day Act of 2015 in the last session which would have made the Tuesday of Election Day a national holiday but we need more than that. Let's RAISE OUR VOICES and demand that Congress do more to protect the idea of "One Person, One Vote" and have it mean something!!
