Action Alert: Keep the Health Benefit Exchange in the AVR Bill

When Automatic Voter Registration (HB 2595) was introduced, it would have applied to individuals acquiring Enhanced Drivers’ Licenses (EDL’s) through the Department of Licensing, individuals working through the Health Benefit Exchange (HBE), and included a plan to add more state agencies soon. As it has moved through the process the focus was narrowed and additional agencies were removed from the bill. If the HBE is also removed from the final bill, the program will include a much smaller number of citizens. This smaller group will not reflect the diversity of our citizens and is not likely to include many traditionally disenfranchised individuals. We cannot let AVR get watered-down as lawmakers debate which agencies will be included in the final bill. 

We are so close to passing Automatic Voter Registration.  Please help us across the finish line by reaching out to your legislators.

Please feel free to edit the sample email below to include your own reasons for supporting and inclusive AVR.
