| At the beginning of the new Congress, and we are proud to support the first piece of legislation introduced in the House —HR1—a bill that stands to improve American elections by making them freer, fairer, and more accessible to all eligible Americans.|
HR1 includes comprehensive reforms, like restoring the Voting Rights Act, improving Automatic Voter Registration, creating a public financing system through small donor matching funds, overturning Citizens United, ending partisan gerrymandering, and more! The League worked behind the scenes to influence the language of this legislation, including a push to include Same Day Registration.
This bill will make our elections fairer, put the power back into the hands of the American people, and it deserves bipartisan support. We’re asking all of our members and supporters to click here to call their Representative and ask them to vote Yes for HR1.
