Building Your Action Plan for Election Day Registration
Kristina MensikRoom 107
Over the past year, Common Cause and the Election Modernization Coalition have led a campaign to enact Election Day Registration (EDR). This is a critical reform: in this month's election, as in others, eligible voters were unable to participate because of issues with their registration. Overwhelmingly, those would-be voters are low-income, the elderly, and people of color. EDR is a simple reform that would prevent this from happening, has been used for over 40 years in 21 other states.
Join us to get an in-depth explanation of the impact of Massachusetts’ 20-day registration deadline, how Election Day Registration will ameliorate those harms and move the Bay State towards a more fully participatory democracy, and how you can help in the months ahead.
