Freedom to Vote Act Daily Action: National Voting Standards

November 8

During this week’s Senate recess, we’re joining with people all over the country in a coordinated #TimeToAct Week of Action, to call attention to the urgency of changing the filibuster and passing the Freedom to Vote Act now.

Day 1: Establish National Voting Standards

For this first day of action we ask you to focus on the aspect of the Freedom to Vote Act that will create national standards for voting. These standards will ensure that all Americans have access to automatic registration, same-day and online voter registration, and early voting.

Our country is unique in the hurdles we create for people to register to vote. The Freedom to Vote Act would alleviate the burdens voter registration places on individual voters by requiring states to implement two common sense voter registration reforms: Automatic Voter Registration (AVR) and Same Day Registration (SDR). Together,these two reforms would ensure voter registration is no longer a barrier to the ballot box for millions of people.

Actions

Choose from any or all of the following:

  1. Download and share this graphic on social media, using the hashtags #TimeToAct, #VotingRightsNow, and #FreedomToVoteAct. On Twitter, be sure to tag Senators Tillis and Burr @SenThomTillis and @SenatorBurr.
  2. Call and email Sen. Thom Tillis (202-224-6342) & call and email Sen. Richard Burr (202-224-3154). Tell them you support national standards for voting, and they should, too. Tell them you expect them to vote FOR the Freedom to Vote Act when they get back from recess.
  3. Write a letter to the editor, stating why national voting standards are important. Call out Senators Burr’s and Tillis’s recent vote AGAINST the Voting Rights Act and their refusal to support the Freedom to Vote Act. Their anti-democracy stance hurts North Carolinians and voters all over the country.

Sample Tweets & Posts

All Americans deserve the freedom to vote, wherever they live. We need national voting standards now! Pass the #FreedomToVoteAct.

Early voting, same-day registration, automatic registration: the national voting standards in the #FreedomToVoteAct make it easier for ALL Americans to vote.
