It's no secret that the election turnout for 2020 was far and beyond anything the United States has ever seen. Even with a concerted Republican effort to suppress the vote on a massive level, more people voted than at any other point in our country's history.
This massive turnout should be viewed by all as a success. It is undoubtedly a good thing that so many people were empowered to participate in our democracy. Still, reactionaries are already attacking the reforms that made this massive participation possible - reforms like the expansion of mail-in voting.
It's true that our electoral system needs to change - but in a way that expands voting access, not restricts it. Just as our economy is stronger when everyone participates in it, our democracy is stronger when everyone has a voice. That's why we're pushing for more inclusionary voting practices. Are you with us?
We need 10,000 supporters to tell us before 11:59 p.m.:
Should we continue to expand voting access?
Here are some policies we should adopt:
* Codify a new Voting Rights Act, which would expand voting rights for every adult in this country
* Pursue universal automatic voter registration and same-day registration
* Ban voter ID laws
* Make Election Day a holiday
* Grant universal access to mail-in voting
* Restore voting rights to all incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people
When voters are inspired to participate, our democracy works better. These aren't pie-in-the-sky dreams; they are simple, democratic aspirations. And we can't stop with voting rights - we also need to let the people of Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico pursue statehood so all of our citizens have a say in who is running our government.
We want to know if people are on board to make our democracy more inclusive and expand voting rights, and right now, we need 28 more people from xxxxxx to reach statistical significance. Tell us before 11:59 p.m.:
