There will be a floor vote on the Voting Rights Restoration Bill (HB 1078) in the WA State Senate this week. Passing the Senate vote is the last step before it goes to the Governor’s desk to be signed into law.
Voting rights restoration would bring over 20,000 Washingtonians back into our democracy. By re-enfranchising people on community supervision, HB 1078 would give a voice back to the people who are most impacted by our criminal legal system, including many of our Black and Indigenous neighbors who are disproportionately silenced by the current policy.
We know the fight is going to be tough in the Senate, and we need you to show our Senators how many of us believe that every citizen living in our communities deserves a voice in our democracy.
Please use our easy form to email or call your representatives urging them to vote YES on HB 1078.
You can also tag your legislators tomorrow on social media for our #FreeTheVote action, using graphics from our social media toolkit.
