Voting Rights

Voting rights

We must protect and expand voting rights so that everyone — from the college student, to the busy parent juggling kids, to the 9-5 employee with limited time-off, to the shift worker with unpredictable hours — has the opportunity to have their say in our democracy. We should not only expand voting hours on Election Day, we need no-excuse early voting for mail-in and drop off ballots. We’ve proven during this pandemic that it is possible, while not sacrificing the integrity of our election process. The right to vote must be protected and expanded. And that includes making it easier to vote for those newly eligible and for those with a criminal record who have served their time.
