Did you see the news?
We had such a successful hearing on Monday that we’re back in Salem today for a Democracy Day of Action in the Capitol.
We’re meeting with legislators and asking them to support our bill to allow 16-year-olds to pre-register to vote.
Sounds like a no-brainer, right? We think so, but…. We need your help. If you can’t join the 100+ Bus Volunteers in Salem today, you can still help us lobby our elected officials to vote yes on Senate Bill 802.
Will you please click here to email your Senator and tell them to support our bill?
How cool would it be if Oregon passed 16-year-old pre-registration exactly 10 years after we allowed 17-year-olds to pre-register to vote? We had almost unanimous support on this legislation and we’re hoping to get there again with your help.
Almost 20,000 16-year-olds get their drivers licenses every year in Oregon. Lets make sure they get registered. Like we’ve been saying for the past 10 years–voter registration is the biggest impediment to voting and we’re fighting to remove those barriers. 10 states and the District of Columbia all have pre–reg for 16-year-olds. It really bums us out that Florida is better on this issue then Oregon. Let’s fix this! Take action.
Couldn’t make it to Salem but want to help? Donate $10 bucks for lunch for a participant on our lobby day. Follow #preregattheleg to watch our democracy lobby day in action.
