Today’s Action: Tell our leaders to protect our elections during COVID-19

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has introduced an Election Protection Plan in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, which may last on-off as long as 2022 while we wait for a vaccine.

Republicans are panicking. They know and are publicly admitting that making elections more accessible literally means that no Republican would ever be elected again. With November’s presidential election looming just six months away and no vaccine predicted, we do not have a second to waste to protect democracy and reach this beautiful goal of a GOP-free world.

Call or email your Members of Congress and demand they support Elizabeth Warren’s Election Protection Plan (send them the link) and commit $4 billion (NO LESS) to the following changes in our election system during this pandemic:

  • Give every American the ability to REGISTER TO VOTE safely and easily, including: a ban on voter roll purges, online voter registration in every state, and same-day voter registration in every state.
  • Give every American the EASY OPTION TO VOTE-BY-MAIL, including: providing pre-paid return postage, waiving requirements that would break social distancing guidelines (such as a notary signature or copies of IDs), and providing USPS whatever emergency funding they need to stay in service through the November election.
  • Provide every American HEIGHTENED PROTECTIONS FOR IN-PERSON VOTING, including: 30 days of early voting in every state, dropping voter ID laws, extending polling hours, and funding states’ abilities to keep polling locations sanitary and polling workers safe with supplies and proper social distancing.
  • FIGHT ELECTION DISINFORMATION by implementing robust ballot tracking tools so that voters can follow their ballots and trust their votes have been counted, and holding social media platforms accountable for identifying, preventing and removing political disinformation.

Anything less than directly addressing these vital needs for our election in the face of this pandemic, and we’ll be looking at either a sham of an election system OR thousands of voting-caused deaths…or both. It is critical Congress acts NOW to protect our democratic right to vote in this unprecedented time of crisis.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and tell them to support Elizabeth Warren’s Election Protection Plan, putting a minimum of $4 billion towards a national vote-by-mail system, expanded in-person voting options and protections, and increased voter registration capabilities in time for the November presidential election.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition calling on the Senate to stop Trump’s dictatorial scheme to force through nominees without approval, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
