Demand Automatic Voter Registration in Every State!

Voter registration systems in many states are out of date — and countless otherwise eligible Americans do not show up to vote each year because they were never registered.

We can do better — by replacing our cumbersome voter registration process with Automatic Voter Registration (AVR).

By automatically registering eligible citizens to vote when they interact with the DMV or other government agencies, we can dramatically improve our electoral process.

This simple reform will make our election system much safer, less expensive, and more accessible. Plus, it’d significantly increase the number of eligible voters who participate in our democracy — and make sure election results more accurately reflect what the people want.

Automatic Voter Registration is just common sense — and it’s already delivering major results in states across the country. Oregon and California, two of the initial states to adopt AVR, have seen huge progress: hundreds of thousands of eligible voters have been automatically registered to vote there.

It’s time to take this simple, groundbreaking solution nationwide.


Automatic Voter Registration (AVR) would help to ensure that every eligible American has a voice in our democracy, would save states money, and would make voting rolls more accurate and secure. AVR should be enacted in each and every state to modernize our outdated voter registration system.
