All registered voters of the United States of America should be assured of some common sense principles about their voting experience in the process of casting a ballot.
We intend to submit a Petition to State Secretaries and Congress on all voters’ behalf for a Bill of Voter’s Participation Rights to ensure those principles. As a registered voter, we invite you to sign on with us.
First, have a look at the 10 principles below to understand what we’re asking of our government. Then you can look at the actual Petition we plan to present by State. When you supply your address to identify where you’re registered to vote, your digital signature will automatically be added to the Petition for your home State.
Supporting this cause takes 2 easy steps:
- Fill out the form and click “I Support a Bill of Voter’s Participation Rights.”

That’s all it takes to request your government recognize 10 principles of voter participation. If you’re not ready to sign on just yet, no worries; but send us a message. We’d love your input.
