While many states with Republican Governors and legislatures are trying to suppress the ability of their people to vote in elections, others like California are moving forward with trying to empower more people to vote.
In California, the bill AB 1436 will allow people to register to vote up until and including election day.
Getting this passed in California will lay the groundwork for other states with democratically-minded leadership to pursue this course as well so showing your support by signing this petition, which will be used to help pressure CA Legislative committee votes to approve it, can pay dividends in other states as well.
For full disclosure, GROW (Grass Roots Over Washington), PlanetPOV’s activist community (which all members are welcome to join!) are co-sponsoring this petition drive.
Here is the link to the petition:
Please feel free to tweet, Facebook and pass this link along to anyone you think might be interested.
It’s time to push back against the right wing forces trying to take away the rights of Americans to vote and turn it around, empowering more and more Americans to make their voices heard in the voting booth.
