How to Change Election Law

55 minutes

Are you outraged by the long lines, the number of voters kicked off the rolls, the millions of dollars candidates need to run for office, faulty voting machines, confusion about voter ID and overall voter suppression tactics? We can #TakeCivicAction to change how we vote.
Sista To Watch -- powered by Higher Heights for America
What led to Georgia State Senator Nikema Williams being arrested? L. Joy tells us about the incident and Senator Williams' activism to make every vote count.

Homework

Contact your Secretary of State/local Board of Elections to find out how your elections are administered. Is it easy or difficult according to the rules?
Think about how you will organize around improving how elections are run in your state. (Maybe you’ll testify in a public hearing about voting, maybe you will push for a State Voter Rights Amendment)
Find out if there are organizations (Common Cause, etc.) on the ground in your state already working around voters rights/elections and consider getting involved.
