VICTORY: Massachusetts House Passes Voting Reform

This year, the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act and dozens of U.S. states got busy introducing restrictive voting bills that would prevent poor, minority, and elderly voters from making it to the polls. Meanwhile, some Massachusetts legislators were working to pass an election modernization bill that would allow online voter registration and early voting. That’s why Sara Brady of the organization MassVOTE started several MoveOn Petitions asking members of the Massachusetts General Court to stand up for the state’s voters and pass the bill. On November 20, after thousands of people signed the petitions and joined MassVOTE’s campaign, the Massachusetts House passed the bill onto the Senate, marking an important first step in election reform for the state.
