#ProtectOurVOTE

No voter should have to choose between their health and their vote.

Your participation in this safe drive-in will raise awareness and call on Congress to pass $3.6 billion to help states and localities provide safe voting options during the pandemic including mail-in, dropbox, curbside, extended early voting and safe in-person voting on Election Day.

The time is now! Election officials must hire staff, buy mail sorting, opening and ballot scanning equipment, lease voting locations for remaining primaries and the general election.

The nationwide protests actions could include car caravans, spelling out VOTE (Protect Our) with cars in an empty parking, or online events such as a virtual local rally or press event.

ABOUT: Declaration for American Democracy

Our coalition includes groups from the labor, racial justice, faith, women’s rights, environmental, good government, and many other important communities. Formed in 2018, we set out on a mission to take back our democracy and restore power to the people. We believe that we must build a democracy where everyone participates, every vote is counted, and everyone’s voice is heard.
