No More Hold-Ups for the EAC
With #SOTU, the President threw electoral reform into the spotlight as a top priority our nation must address. Creating a new bi-partisan Voting Rights Commission is only the first step.
With the Election Assistance Commission (EAC), we already have a Commission dedicated to implementing modernized standards as part of long-term solutions. Congress seems to have forgotten this Commission and the important and necessary work the appointed Commissioners are tasked with. The White House is also at fault here, having provided few nominations for Congress to confirm.
With a full commission, voting standards are improved, based on recommendations from voters and officials across the nation. You can improve our elections right now by signing our petition.
Long lines are only the tip of the iceberg. Electoral dysfunction holds far deeper roots and we need our elected officials to do their part in improving our unique democracy, committing national support to voters who responsibly participate. The EAC is one step in bettering our elections.
Sign your name and call on Congress and the White House to make the EAC work.
