Are you registered to vote this Fall? If not, you might be SOL.

“Our nation is strengthened when the majority of our eligible citizens vote. A wave of voter suppression legislation, chiefly government-issued photo ID laws, threatens to make it difficult to impossible for communities of color, elderly, veterans and people with disabilities to do so. That is why VoteRiders, working in the states with key partners to help voters acquire the necessary documents to vote, is so vital.” -- Eric Marshall, Senior Manager for Election Administration, State Voices; former Co-Leader of Election Protection

Protecting the right to vote is not a partisan issue. It’s an American issue. No citizen should be prevented from exercising this basic right. Complicated voter ID laws put state bureaucrats between eligible voters and the ballot box. Act now to protect your vote and the votes of others. You can help save our American democracy.
