[This form will automatically blast e-faxes to all your members of Congress, with the following petition text.]
Please tell your member of Congress to make the passage of election protection legislation a priority before they break for the summer recess, starting with the bi-partisan DISCLOSE Act (H.R. 5175), which will mitigate the corrosive effects of the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision allowing corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money to influence elections. Two-thirds of Americans are opposed to this decision because it undermines our democracy and puts profits over people.
In addition, passage of other common sense federal legislation will protect the votes of millions of people who are either unfairly kept from voting or are disenfranchised when their lawfully cast vote is not counted. These include citizens who have been wrongfully purged from voter lists, voters challenged at the polls for various technicalities, felons who have been released back into society, people who have been given false information about the day or place of voting, and nuns, retirees and the homeless who do not possess a state issued photo ID.
Many members of Congress have introduced legislation to address these and other barriers to a fair and representative election so every citizen who wants to vote can do so successfully in the 2010 midterm elections and beyond, and each of the measures referenced in the fax petition above is critical to preserve our democracy.
The one click form below will send your personal message as a fax to all your government representatives selected below, with the subject "Pass Election Protection Legislation Now." At the same time you can send your personal comments only as a letter to the editor of your nearest local daily newspaper if you like.
