ICYMI: Every State, Every Vote Co-Chair Gov. Kate Brown Joins National Voting Reform Call to Action with Democratic National Committee

Yesterday, Every State, Every Vote Co-Chair Oregon Gov. Kate Brown participated in a National Voting Reform Call to Action with DNC Chair Tom Perez, DNC Chief Executive Officer Seema Nanda, and DNC Vice Chair for Civic Engagement and Voter Participation Karen Carter Peterson. Gov. Brown spoke on Democrats’ efforts to provide safe, accessible, and secure voting for the 2020 election and beyond.

The coronavirus pandemic will impact the upcoming elections in unprecedented ways, as evidenced by the GOP-induced chaos in Wisconsin. Last week, Every State, Every Vote Co-Chairs Gov. Brown and Stacey Abrams called on Congress to grant $4 billion in election assistance to the states. Brown also outlined the importance of vote-by-mail in a Newsweek op-ed.

Every State, Every Vote Co-Chair Oregon Gov. Kate Brown: “When the fabric of our society is fraying, we have to ensure the foundation of democracy is strong. We know that in November, no one should have to choose between their health and their right to vote.”

“That means expanding safe access to the ballot box both in person and from home through vote-by-mail programs. As governor, putting safe voting practices in place is an easy choice to make. Every State, Every Vote is doing what we can to help fellow governors eliminate chaos at the polls in November.”
