Progressive Turnout Project Signs Onto Joint COVID-19 Voting Adjustment Letter
“Today, Progressive Turnout Project signed onto a joint letter to members of Congress, governors and elected officials across the country, urging them to immediately take critical steps to ensure the public’s safety without compromising free and fair elections. It’s atrocious to force voters to choose between their health and the right to vote, especially when 33 states already have vote-by-mail infrastructure in place. Voter turnout is suffering during this pivotal election year, and it will continue to do so unless we extend voting by mail and early voting now — not wait until the pandemic worsens.
“Any elected official who opposes these actions is making it clear that they don’t think our democracy should be protected.” — Alex Morgan, Executive Director of Progressive Turnout Project
Progressive Turnout Project is a grassroots-funded political action committee with a single mission: get Democrats to the polls. PTP designs, tests, and executes specialized voter-turnout programs targeting inconsistent Democratic voters in the most competitive elections across the country. In 2020, the organization will invest $52.5 million to knock on over 10.1 million doors and get out the vote in 17 presidential and Senate battleground states.
