CURRENT ACTION: Tell Senator Collins to support the Freedom to Vote Act!

In light of the anniversary of the assault on U.S. democracy on January 6, 2020 and the upcoming celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, please write or call Senator Susan Collins and urge her to support the Freedom to Vote Act!

This critical legislation will address voter registration and voting access, election integrity and security, redistricting, and campaign finance by:

  • expanding voter registration (e.g., automatic and same-day registration) and voting access (e.g., vote-by-mail and early voting)
  • limiting the removal of voters from voter rolls
  • establishing Election Day as a federal holiday
  • declaring that the right of a U.S. citizen to vote in any election for federal office shall not be denied or abridged because that individual has been convicted of a criminal offense unless, at the time of the election, such individual is serving a felony sentence

Once you’ve contacted Senator Collins, please share with your networks and ask them to do the same!
