My plan to save our elections during this pandemic:

We're in the middle of both a worldwide pandemic and an election year.

If we're going to carry forward as a democracy and fight the coronavirus, we need to move to immediate, national vote-by-mail.

Sign the petition if you want vote-by-mail implemented through November to protect our elections.

Americans shouldn't have to choose between exercising their constitutional right to vote and putting their health at risk.

This is critical for vulnerable populations — seniors, Americans with compromised immune systems — who deserve a voice and a vote, no matter what. It's also critical for folks on the front lines — doctors, nurses, biomedical researchers — who shouldn't be asked to leave work to stand in line at polling places.

All Americans deserve the option to vote-by-mail.

This isn't a distant threat to our elections. Several states have already announced they're postponing their primary elections because of coronavirus. States are being forced to choose between forgoing their elections or putting their residents at risk.

America has a long history of taking urgent and swift action when our constitutional rights are on the line. This should be no different.

Let's get to work and get this done. If you agree that all voters should have access to vote-by-mail, sign my petition.
