#TakeAction – March 25, 2020
Happy Wednesday! Here is how you can #TakeAction today, March 25th:
🔶 Demand our Senators ensure safe, secure elections during the COVID-19 outbreak
🔶 Ask Senators to declassify coronavirus response meetings & briefings
1) Action: Call our Senators, demand they ensure our elections are safe and secure during the COVID-19 outbreak
Call to ask Senator Cantwell / Senator Murray to fight to include the Natural Disaster and Emergency Ballot Act (S.3529) in the coronavirus relief package being debated in the Senate. This bill provides money to do the following:
· Expand early in-person voting and no-excuse absentee vote-by-mail to all states.
· Require states and jurisdictions to establish contingency plans to enable eligible Americans to vote in the case of an emergency.
· Require the Election Assistance Commission to create a domestic version of the federal write-in absentee ballot.
· Require all states provide envelopes with prepaid postage for voter registration applications, absentee ballot applications, and absentee ballots. Offer and accept online absentee ballot applications.
· Require absentee ballots to be counted if postmarked or signed before polls close on Election Day.
2) Action: Ask Senators to declassify coronavirus response meetings & briefings
Call our Senators, ask them to declassify records of improperly classified public health meetings and briefings so all Americans can know what Richard Burr and other privileged politicians know about coronavirus:
Call each Senator to demand:
• That previously classified coronavirus briefings received by Senator Burr and others be declassified so that the American people can be fully informed as they make decisions about their health and safety;
• That the practice of classifying meetings essential to preserving public health and safety end immediately; and· That Senators who sold investments after these briefings and the process of classifying public health briefings be investigated by Congress.
