Constitution Day 2012

Please type your zip code below to send an email to your state‚Äôs top election official, asking that official to stand with the Constitution on its 225th anniversary and make sure that all eligible voters can cast a vote this fall.  We encourage you to add your unique voice to this Constitutional Progressives message.

Here are some points to stress in your message:

  • September 17th is the 225th anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution.  I am a [INSERT YOUR STATE] voter writing to urge you to stand by our Constitution and protect our most fundamental right, the right to vote.
  • The right to vote is deeply embedded in our Constitution and its history.  Generations of Americans have fought and sacrificed to expand the right to vote through constitutional Amendments.  This story calls into question any state efforts to impose unreasonable, arbitrary restrictions on the right to vote.
  • Conservatives throughout the country have put pressure on state governments to pass laws that make it harder for ordinary Americans to vote.  These restrictive laws have no place in [INSERT YOUR STATE].  An assault on the right to vote is an assault on the Constitution.
  • All voting laws should be implemented in a manner that is as protective as possible of the right to vote. 

A sample email is provided in the content box but we encourage you to customize your message to your state's chief election official.
