A Critical Time for America’s Democracy
America Votes is leading comprehensive efforts to expand voters’ access to the ballot box, ensuring America’s elections truly represent the diversity of voices across the country and not the willpower of partisan dominance.
In the aftermath of the 2016 election and a presidential campaign and administration intent on delegitimizing the nation’s democracy, the work of America Votes is more important than ever.
A Proven Record of Success for Voters
- America Votes’ in-state staff and network have proven a vital asset in pushing back against the conservative-led “War on Voting” designed to systematically deny the rights of young voters and people of color.
- In Colorado, America Votes led efforts to successfully implement the Voter Access and Modernized Elections Act in 2013, which provides Coloradans with an all-mail ballot and same-day registration.
- America Votes led efforts in Florida to pass new election reform legislation that provide voters with a shortened ballot and reinstates the early voting window, and AV partners helped pass Amendment Four in 2018, which restored voting rights for hundreds of thousands of Floridians.
- In New Mexico, the America Votes coalition passed Automatic Voter Registration and Same-Day registration in the state, and we continue to lead a broad Election Administration Coalition in the state.
