Candidate Overview

Weld has pledged to fix democracy first!

The former Massachusetts governor participated in our Democracy Town Hall (watch here), at which he provided public statements on all the policies included on this webpage. Weld supports critical democracy reform measures that address the major problems in American democracy. He also took a strong stands against voter suppression and false claims of “voter fraud”. We would urge him to put these commitments on his campaign website.

Here are some policies that he could adopt to begin building his platform:

      • Automatic voter registration
      • Same-day voter registration
      • Repeal discriminatory voter ID laws and other voter suppression policies
      • A full end to felon disenfranchisement

If you want to see Bill Weld embrace these policies, check the bottom of the page for his staffers contact information.
