Access Democracy voting rights home

Fixing how elections are run to ensure that all eligible Americans can vote.

Millions of Americans can't access the democratic process because of solvable problems in how elections are run — and just 80,000 votes decided the outcome of the 2016 presidential race.

  • long lines

  • registration problems

Voting rights issues are getting fought out in the courts, and local and national advocacy organizations challenge state legislators who try to pass regressive voting laws.

the solution

Access Democracy is working to fix it. And we need you.
