How this will help

The right to vote is the cornerstone of our democracy -- and it's our civic duty. Our democracy works best when everyone who can vote, does vote.  

But voter turnout in the United States is shamefully low -- just slightly more than half of the voting age population cast a ballot in 2012. Whether it's due to voter suppression or understandable frustration at the system, when fewer Americans vote our government is less able to represent us.

Common Cause is working every day to restore balance to our democracy -- but change starts with each one of us. And the first step to making our democracy stronger is doing your part to make sure eligible Americans cast their ballots this Election Day.

Take our pledge today to say you'll be part of the solution, and that you'll vote this November and encourage your friends, family, and co-workers to do the same.
