Sign the Petition to

U.S. Congress

President Trump has made it clear: he doesn’t want every eligible American to be able to vote -- because he thinks it’ll hurt his political party’s chances of winning elections.

His remarks are outrageous. And in response, Congress must pass the vital reforms -- including expanded vote-by-mail, early voting, and online registration -- that’ll help voters make themselves heard this year.

Donald Trump just told Fox & Friends outright: he doesn't want to make our elections more accessible to eligible voters. Why?

Because, according to him, "you'd never have a Republican elected in this country again."

That's right -- the President of the United States openly admitted that he doesn't care if Americans are denied one of their most fundamental rights in our democracy… as long as it benefits him and his party.

Trump made this shameless remark in response to the House's efforts to include crucial reforms, like expanded vote-by-mail and increased early voting hours, in Congress' latest COVID-19 stimulus bill. These reforms are essential to protect voters during this global public health crisis -- and to ensure nobody loses their voice in our democracy this year.

But Trump has made it clear that he doesn't care about preserving our rights and defending our nation's values. He cares about his party's chances of winning.

We must show Donald Trump just how wrong he is: EVERY eligible American should be able to vote, no matter who they want to vote for. Add your name to condemn the president's remarks -- and urge Congress to pass the reforms voters need to cast their ballots safely this year.
