To ensure democracy works for everyone, voting and elections must be free, fair, and accessible.


That’s why Common Cause works on every step of the elections process: working to pass laws that ensure voters’ access to the ballot box, helping voters who are having trouble casting their ballots, and working with election administrators to ensure our voting systems and machines are safe, reliable, and secure.

As Americans, our right to vote is a privilege and a responsibility. We need to take that responsibility seriously, ensure that our elections are free and fair, and safeguard our voting system – while also working to make voting more accessible so every eligible citizen can make their voice heard.
