In order to make sure every eligible voter is prepared and registered to vote in 2012, MassVOTE is fighting to modernize Massachusetts' election laws through passing these reforms:
• Pre-Registration Lowering the voter registration age to allow 16 and 17 year-olds register early, so they are ready to vote the day they turn 18.
• Election Audits Randomly checking the accuracy of our voting machines against a hand count in a small percentage of precintcs across the state.
• Permanent Voter Registration So when you fill out a change of address form at the Registry of Motor Vehicles or the Post Office, your voter registration will be automatically updated.
• Online Voter Registration Allowing eligible voters to register on a computer or mobile device.
• Election Day Registration To allow citizens to register to vote on election day with valid ID.
The Massachusetts State Legislature needs to pass these election bills by the end of 2011, in order to implement these laws in time for the 2012 Elections. Each of these sensible pieces of legislation will help thousands of people vote and make sure their vote is counted accurately.
Please use this site to write a letter to your state legislators and urge them to pass as many of these bills as possible before the end of 2011. Once you've sent your letter, please forward this link around to your friends, family and colleagues, the more people we mobilize the louder our collective voice becomes.
Thank you for your support,
