America is facing a corruption crisis - but politicians aren't acting like it.
Sign this petition to send an immediate message to every presidential candidate, including President Trump, demanding they #FixDemocracyFirst and commit to comprehensive democracy reform in the first 90 days of their administration.
Since 2008, more than 15,000 polling places have closed. In 2017, America was downgraded from a “full democracy” to a “flawed democracy” by the Economist Intelligence Unit. And in 2018, over 200 officials in 33 states reported that they need to replace their voting machines by 2020, but lack the funding to do so.
We can no longer sit by and watch the erosion of our political system. We’re asking all presidential candidates, including President Trump, to sign the pledge to #FixDemocracyFirst and pass these reforms in the first 90 days of their administration:
- Protect Our Right to Vote by ending voter purges, passing automatic voter registration, expanding early voting, same-day registration & vote at home options, and restoring the vote for returning citizens with past felony convictions.
- Make Elections Secure & Competitive by stopping foreign meddling in our elections, ending gerrymandering, & passing Ranked Choice Voting.
- End Political Corruption by ending secret donations, closing the revolving door between government and the lobbying industry, and creating democracy vouchers or small donor matching programs that make politicians dependent on voters instead of big-money interests.
If presidential candidates hear from everyone in this movement, we'll put them under immense public pressure to answer to us and take action to fix our broken system.
Add your name to send an immediate message to presidential candidates and urge them to sign the pledge to #FixDemocracyFirst.
