50 million Americans who were eligible to vote in the 2012 election were not registered to vote. Another 12 million weren't able to vote because of problems with their voter registration. That shouldn't happen to the most advanced democracy in the world.  


Citizens deserve a modern way to access our democracy's most important right. States like California and Oregon have already moved in the right direction -- they've passed laws to automatically register eligible voters when they get their driver's licenses or IDs at the DMV.

In the short time Oregon's law has been in effect, thousands of new citizens have been included on the voter rolls. That's a huge step towards making sure everyone who should be able to vote, can vote.

Now, there are two bills in Congress that'd bring this modern reform to all 50 states, potentially inviting millions more citizens into our political process. Tell Congress to get it done.
