Our democracy is faced with many challenges, but none more important than making sure everyone who can vote is able to vote. The good news: we've overcome structural and legal obstacles to vote in the past when citizens have taken action. Ensuring that every eligible American is registered to vote is something I know we can achieve.

One way to do that is with Automatic Voter Registration. 50 million Americans who were eligible to vote in the 2012 election were not registered to vote. Another 12 million weren't able to vote because of problems with their voter registration. That shouldn't happen to the most advanced democracy in the world.

Citizens deserve a modern way to access our democracy's most important right. States like California and Oregon have already moved in the right direction -- they've passed laws to automatically register eligible voters when they get their driver's licenses or IDs at the DMV.

In the short time Oregon's law has been in effect, thousands of new citizens have been included on the voter rolls. That's a huge step towards making sure everyone who should be able to vote, can vote.

Now, there are two bills in Congress that'd bring Automatic Voter Registration to all 50 states, potentially bringing millions more citizens into our political process.

Automatic Voter Registration would invite millions of citizens to take part in our democracy. Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy -- it is the great equalizer -- one person, one vote -- which is why we've had to overcome obstacles to voting and now must extend the promise of democracy to more and more Americans.

Automatic Voter Registration brings us one step closer to a democracy that engages, listens to, and reflects the people it serves. All the people.

Sign our petition to Congress, urging them to help build a better democracy by passing nation-wide Automatic Voter Registration.
