Free and fair elections are a fundamental right and a cornerstone of American democracy. However, too many voters still face obstacles simply to cast a ballot. Kurt is committed to knocking down barriers that stand between voters and the ballot box, so that every American can exercise their Constitutional rights.
With COVID-19 complicating in-person voting, we must take bold steps to ensure that voters can access the polls safely and securely. That means expanding early voting, absentee voting, and vote-by-mail. Here in Oregon, vote-by-mail has been a massive success. Every American should be able to take advantage of safe and accessible vote-by-mail. That’s why Kurt co-sponsored a bill to expand Oregon-style vote-by-mail nationwide.
