Democracy thrives when all citizens can freely elect those who represent their values. If you believe in secure, convenient voting and fair elections, take action and stand with people of color to protect the right to vote.
Call: Or write your state’s election official (look up) and governor (especially IL).
Script: Hi. I’m a resident of [state], concerned about our participation in Crosscheck. This system flags people with common names like Juan Garcia, making it harder for them to vote. A study showed that 1 in 6 Latinos get on the flagged, 1 in 7 Asian Americans, and 1 in 9 African Americans. If you’re like me and want elections in [state] to be fair and unbiased, please stop participation in Crosscheck and switch to ERIC. Thanks.
Note: This action applies to teal and orange states on this map.
