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 provides voters with a shortened ballot and reinstates the early voting window.
  • In North Carolina, America Votes has worked alongside partners and key allies to defend the state’s significant African-American electorate against a series of anti-voter policies.

Phase One:

Advancing Voting Rights in State Legislatures

During the 2018 legislative session, America Votes and partners are on the frontline in states, defending voting rights and proactively advocating for positive election reforms.

Phase Two:

Winning Voting
Rights Measures
at the Ballot Box

In several states, America Votes will be leading efforts to pass key ballot initiatives intended to strengthen the nation’s democracy – from Automatic Voter Registration to voting rights restoration for those who have served their time.

In the most recent Nevada legislative session, with the help of allies, Automatic Voter Registration successfully advanced through the state legislature and now is heading to the ballot in 2018.

Similarly, America Votes is also working with allies in Florida to advance a voting rights restoration ballot initiative.

Phase Three:

Leveraging
Opportunities in 2019 Legislative Sessions

With the possibility of new progressive majorities after Election Day, America Votes is currently laying the groundwork for new legislative priorities in 2019 legislative sessions.

In New Mexico, where the likelihood of a progressive state government following the midterm election is high, America Votes is currently identifying allies and building grassroots support for progressive election bills in the 2019 legislative session, such as same-day registration and Automatic Voter Registration.
