Sign the Petition to

U.S. Congress

Donald Trump has launched an outrageous, baseless crusade against vote-by-mail -- all because he thinks it might hurt his party’s chances of winning elections.

Vote-by-mail is secure, effective, and non-partisan -- and in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s one of the safest ways for voters to make themselves heard. That’s why Congress must fund this and other pro-voter reforms.

Make no mistake: President Trump's daily attacks against vote-by-mail are dangerous -- and they're putting our right to vote in jeopardy.

Trump -- who voted absentee in Florida's primary this year -- has been railing against vote-by-mail on Twitter for months. He's spouting baseless claims about the reform -- and he even threatened to withhold federal funding from those states that encourage it. 

But Trump has also admitted the real reason he opposes vote-by-mail. According to an interview with Fox & Friends, he thinks if everyone can vote -- "you'd never have a Republican elected in this country again."

That's right -- the president doesn't care if Americans are denied their fundamental right to vote… as long as it benefits him and his party.

No one should have to choose between risking their health or losing their right to vote during the COVID-19 crisis. And vote-by-mail can help -- it's been tried and tested in states across the country and has proven to be a secure and convenient option for voters.

Plus, vote-by-mail is a paper-based system that's not hackable -- and can easily be audited to ensure election results are correct. That's why many leading Republican officials support vote-by-mail.

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 attacks on vote-by-mail -- and urge Congress to pass the reforms voters need to cast their ballots safely this year.
