WHAT IS THE FREEDOM TO VOTE ACT?
KEY FEATURES OF
THE FREEDOM TO VOTE ACT
For American democracy to work, our citizens must have equal opportunities to vote, and the public needs to trust that our elections are fair. But politicians have increasingly worked to make it harder for Americans who oppose them to vote, and trust in our democracy is dropping.
The Freedom to Vote Act would make it harder for politicians to choose who votes and create national standards to ensure greater transparency and security in how votes are counted.
Specifically, the Freedom to Vote Act would
Create nationwide voter ID standards
Require 15 days of early voting and vote-by-mail options for all voters
Ensure every ballot has a paper trail, and every voter can track their mail-in ballot
Make Election Day a federal holiday
Fund strong, state-run audits to protect democracy and election integrity
Allow same-day voter registration for American citizens with proper identification
The Freedom to Vote Act would ensure all American citizens have the opportunity to vote and that all votes are counted fairly. It's how we make sure America’s government stays beholden to the will of the people, not the politicians.
