Sierra Club Supports Same Day Voter Registration - HB 105
Here at The Sierra Club we support making Democracy fair and open to all, because in order to win on our important environmental and health issues we need to operate in a system where the odds are not undemocratically stacked against us. We know that the overwhelming majority of people support clean air, clean water, communities rights to be free from pollution and a livable climate. When we expand access to the ballot box, we expand the opportunity for our voices to be heard.That's why we support same-day voter registration (SDR).
Check out this interesting fact sheet to learn more about same-day registration and why we need it from Demos.
Contact your Senator and Representative to let them know you support SDR and ask them to cosponsor the same day registration bill that is currently being circulated for cosponsors by Senator Henry. Tell them that we need SDR in Delaware, without any unfair or restrictive amendments like excluding primaries. These kinds of special exceptions don't protect anyone except incumbent legislators, and make voting a lot more discriminatory.
