End Citizens United (ECU) // Let America Vote (LAV) Vice President of Political Affairs Chintan Patel issued the following statement praising Governor Josh Shapiro for implementing automatic voter registration in Pennsylvania:
“After making a commitment to Pennsylvanians to keep elections free, fair, and accessible, Governor Shapiro delivered on his promise to safeguard democracy. This commonsense action will increase voter participation, improve election security, and save taxpayers time and money. We applaud him for his unwavering dedication and leadership to removing barriers between voters and the ballot box.
“At a time when our nation has been shaken by the spread of the Big Lie and the insurrection, Governor Shapiro’s announcement sends a powerful message to election deniers that we will not waver in our fight to protect our most powerful right: the freedom to vote.
“Democracy only works when every voice is heard and every vote is counted. We call on governors across the nation to follow Governor Shapiro’s example and prioritize democracy reforms.”
