As the high-stakes 2016 election season continues, a new voting reform is taking off across the country — automatic voter registration. Vermont and West Virginia just passed the reform with bipartisan support. Oregon and California led the way in 2015, enacting laws to automatically and securely register eligible citizens to vote when they obtain or renew a driver’s license. Overall in 2016, 28 states have considered the groundbreaking policy, which can add millions of new voters to the rolls nationwide, increase the integrity of our election process, and cut costs.
Join the Brennan Center for Justice for a conversation featuring former Attorney General Eric Holder, California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, and other experts, explain why the rest of the country should pass it without delay.
