Policies like these can lead to voter disenfranchisement, keeping people who want to vote away from the polls. But you can help to make change:
* Vote: Ironically, one of the best ways to change policy is to elect better policy-makers. If you're able to vote, you can help support officials who want to see more people exercising their right to vote.
* Stay informed: When you sign up with services like Turbo Vote, you can get text reminders about upcoming elections and registration deadlines.
* Write your representatives: Let them know that making voting easier for everyone is something that's important to you.
* Get involved: There's strength in numbers. Local political clubs, grassroots organizers, and activists all want people to be politically engaged. They may already have programs in place to help voters out, and joining a team is a great way to maximize your impact.
