Election Modernization Coalition supports swift passage of H.3722

Common Cause and the Election Modernization Coalition strongly support online voter registration and early voting, two key provisions in the Election Laws Reform Act (H.3722). These important reforms will give voters more choices and help encourage participation in elections. We support this bill’s swift passage in the House and hope it will come to the floor this week.

While we were disappointed that the bill does not incorporate more reforms, including post-election audits and teen pre-registration that passed the House overwhelmingly last year, we remain hopeful that a truly comprehensive bill will ultimately be signed into law.

The Election Modernization Coalition includes Common Cause, MassVOTE, Massachusetts League of Women Voters, Massachusetts ACLU, MASSPIRG, Progressive Massachusetts, and the MIRA Coalition.
