Tell Governor Tate Reeves:
Dear Governor Tate Reeves, I believe the right to vote is fundamental to our democracy — and I’m writing to ask you to protect every Mississippian’s right to be heard in government. It’s very important to me that no eligible citizen in the Magnolia State is disenfranchised by this public health crisis. And, you can take action in time for November’s elections to make sure this happens. We must allow all voters the option of voting by absentee/mail-in ballot or voting early, and we must ensure that all voters who choose to vote in person can safely do so. For voters who choose to vote by absentee ballot, we must make the instructions clear and easy to follow and ensure that all voting by mail allows ample time to cure the ballot. We must accept all ballots postmarked before or on Election Day, provide for no-cost ballot return, and ensure every voter can track their ballot. There should also be a special provision for online voter registration and to request an absentee ballot. We all deserve a say in the future of our families, our communities, and our state — which is why the right to vote is sacred. Thank you for doing whatever you can to protect our vote.
