Dear Colleague,

I write to request your support for my bill, the Same Day Registration Act. The right to vote is among the most fundamental Constitutional rights. My legislation that would remove a hurdle and increase access to that right by requiring all states to allow
same-day voter registration for all federal elections.

Currently, 18 states plus the District of Columbia permit same-day voter registration, which allows any qualified resident of the state to register to vote and cast a ballot on the same day.

High participation in our elections ensures representation that works for the people. Same-day voter registration is one of the most effective tools for increasing voter turnout, which means better representation for everyday Americans.

If you are interested in co-sponsoring or need additional information, please email on my staff or call 5-5811.
