We're fighting for modern, accurate, and secure elections.


It’s no secret that our democracy works best when every eligible member can participate. That’s why we’re working to improve every step of the electoral process—passing laws that facilitate access to the ballot box, helping voters who have trouble on Election Day, and working with election administrators to ensure our voting systems and machines are safe and reliable.

Voting & Elections Campaigns...

Early Voting

Extending the period during which people can vote makes it easier for hardworking Americans to get to the polls.

Election Day Registration

Election Day Registration simplifies and modernizes the voting process for every eligible voter.

Automatic Voter Registration

By switching voter registration from an opt-in to an opt-out system, AVR makes our elections more inclusive, as well as more accurate and secure.

National Popular Vote

As they stand today, presidential elections are not as democratic as you may think—National Popular Vote helps return power to the people.

Election Modernization

Modernizing our elections makes them secure and efficient, saving public money and safeguarding our votes.

Election Protection

Every Massachusetts voter should be able to cast their ballot fairly and freely on Election Day.

Electronic Registration Information Center

Joining ERIC will help keep Massachusetts' voter rolls up-to-date, secure, and accurate.

Protect the 2020 Census

Our mission is to push for a democracy that is fair and representative—which is why we are urging the removal of the citizenship question from the 2020 Census form.

Demand Accountability from Our President

Donald Trump was the first presidential candidate in 40 years to refuse to release his tax returns; now that this tradition has been broken, he may not be the last.
