With Republicans refusing to protect our vote and with elections getting closer every day, we must add actions to our routines to protect Americans' votes from gerrymandering, suppression, and interference.

#ProtectTheVote THREAD 1/9
Help put Spread the Vote put voter IDs in the hands of people who need them.
-21M eligible voters in the US do not have needed ID.
-About half of eligible voters didn't cast a ballot in the 2018 midterms.

Does your state have Automatic Voter Registration (AVR)?

Look yours up. AVR allows registering while applying for or updating a driver's license while at the DMV. 33% of voter registration applications came through a DMV in the 2016 election cycle. 3/9

The safety of 2020 election results relies on election security. Republicans refuse to act on Democrats' initiatives to #ProtectTheVote

We should keep pushing our Republican Senators and House Representatives to secure our elections, but we can help at the local level. 4/9
Some members of the government & the voting machine companies themselves (who make a profit from this) say that their machines are safe from hacking. They are not.

We need hand-marked paper ballots.

We also must end partisan, racial #gerrymandering to ensure everyone's vote counts & voters are not given full representation in their government.

Districts drawn by an independent commission are the best way to ensure competitive, fair elections.

Citizens returning to society should have the right to vote for their own representation.

The best way to expand & protect the vote is to elect the party that wants to: Democrats.

#VoteBlue in national elections, but state legislatures affect your voting rights very closely. Elections for 2019: ballotpedia.org/State_legislat…
For 2020:

That should read,
2 Senators and 1 House Representative.

Thank you. Please do contact your Reps. This bill is important.
