In Her Own Words
“Voting is how Americans hold their elected leaders accountable—free and fair elections are central to our democracy… My bills will ensure that all eligible voters are able to make their voices heard at the ballot box by automatically registering eligible voters, encouraging young people to get involved in our elections, and making it simpler to vote on election day. When our laws make it easier to vote, more people participate in our elections and it makes our country stronger.”Source →
