From our friends at Common Cause Massachusetts:
With your help, Automatic Voter Registration (AVR) recently cleared a crucial hurdle: it was approved by the Massachusetts House with a bipartisan vote of 130-20.
This was a major feat, but our work isn’t over yet. The Senate is expected to bring the bill to the floor as early as this Wednesday. That means that over the next two days, we need to tell every Senator on Beacon Hill to vote in favor of AVR and support more inclusive, accurate, and secure elections in the Commonwealth.
Call to Action
Don’t wait! Send a message TODAY and ask Senator Cyr to vote in favor of AVR:
Now, when the integrity of our electoral process is more at risk than ever, we can’t let this opportunity to better our elections slip by. AVR has support from both sides of the aisle as well as many key government officials, and it has already proven to boost participation in states like Oregon. AVR will also make our elections more secure and will keep our rolls more up-to-date. It is simple, popular, and essential to our democracy.
However, in order to have enough time to fully implement it in Massachusetts for the 2020 Presidential election, AVR must go through the legislature this session. This is a vital reform that cannot wait any longer.
We are so, so close to the finish line. Your efforts have been a key part of the push for AVR so far, and we know we can count on you again. Let’s get this done!
Thanks for all you do,
Pam Wilmot, Executive Director
