The Election Modernization Coalition will be hosting a lobby day on January 31st to convince legislators to make Automatic Voter Registration (AVR) a top priority in 2018.

AVR is the crucial next step in voting rights. It shifts our voter registration from an opt-in system to an opt-out one, involving more citizens in the political process. It also costs less in the long run and makes voter rolls more accurate and secure. Approximately 680,000 eligible citizens are currently not registered to vote in Massachusetts—Automatic Voter Registration could give them a voice in our democracy. Learn more about AVR here.

What is a lobby day? It's a day when members of the public meet with their representatives at the State House to explain why an issue (in this case, AVR) is so important. We will spend an hour teaching you the tips and tricks to speaking with legislators before sending you off to attend scheduled meetings with your representatives to advocate for this vital reform.

Registration and training will take place in Room 428 in the State House (24 Beacon St, Boston, MA 02133).
