Dear President Obama and the Massachusetts State Legislature,
Thank you for recognizing that there are problems with our voting system and for your commitment to improve it. I urge you to pass legislation that will make voting more accessible for all people.
Why is this important?
In his State of the Union Address President Obama said "When any American -- no matter where they live or what their party -- are denied that right because they can't wait for five or six or seven hours just to cast their ballot, we are betraying our ideals."
He's right. We need reforms.
People like 102 year-old Desiline Victor shouldn't have to wait another year for change to come.
Please sign this petition thanking President Obama and our Massachusetts State Legislative Leadership (who have also called for change) and urge them to make 2013 the year of election modernization.
