From Saul Micah Carlin:
Every election, hundreds of thousands of potential first-time voters are systematically disenfranchised by confusing and onerous voter registration deadlines and absentee rules.
But an ever-increasing number of states has addressed this tragedy of democracy by enacting Election Day Voter Registration (EDR). With EDR, anyone who is legally eligible can show up and vote on election day regardless of their registration status.
Join State Representative James Spallone (D-Essex), co-chair of the Government Administration and Elections Committee, and other elected officials, community leaders, student organizers, and good-government advocates in taking a stand on this crucial issue.
Hosted by Wesleyan Democracy Matters and Connecticut Common Cause.
