All On The Line
Expanding mail-in voting is important. But -- we must protect in-person voting too,. If we fail, we risk shutting out people who are historically least likely to vote by mail -- low-income and young voters with nonpermanent mailing addresses, people experiencing homelessness, voters who need language assistance to fill out their ballot, voters living with disabilities, and black voters.

Unfortunately, we expect to see these same communities disproportionately impacted by the economic hardships of the pandemic. AOTL has launched and supported advocacy tools across the country demanding fair, accessible elections. We must protect the right to vote. But -- we cannot do this work alone.

Without safe in-person voting options, many voters may be excluded from the political process. Will you pitch in to help us build a movement strong enough to provide safe, fair, and accessible elections for communities who need it the most?

A recent op-ed from the Boston Globe rolled out a roadmap to protecting in-person voting that should be the standard across the country. Solutions such as keeping neighborhood polling locations open, recruiting new poll workers, implementing safety protections, and expanding in-person early vote to weekends and evenings. Together, these reforms would help ease concerns of voting in-person amidst a pandemic.

Do we need to keep pushing for universal vote-by-mail? 100%. However, we have to make sure that we're protecting those who must vote at the ballot box.

We must protect in-person voting while also expanding vote-by-mail. President Obama has said supporting All On The Line is one of the best ways to get involved in the fight to protect our elections. Can we count on you to donate today?

Together we're going to protect our elections and return our government to people like you, Sula.

Thanks for being a part of this,
Brian Gabriel
AOTL States Press Secretary
