The Case for Voter Registration Modernization

Our voter registration system is wildly outdated and badly in need of modernization. At the dawn of the 19th century, before we fought the Civil War, before the first Model T rolled off the assembly line and before Alexander Graham Bell made the first telephone call, the Whig Party began to put in place our current voter registration system. Like the now-extinct Whig Party, our registration system should be a thing of the past.

Modernizing the system makes it more likely that eligible voters can participate in our democracy and streamlines a resource-intensive process that relies on printing, postage and paper. Modernizing voter registration will make voter registration far more efficient and far less expensive, reinvesting hundreds of millions of dollars into our communities each election cycle.
