BGA Joins Promote the Vote in Call for Changes to Assure Safe, Accessible Elections

Building on that experience, the Better Government Association has been working with Promote the Vote, a coalition of nonprofits, to urge lawmakers to make some of those changes permanent and to make improvements as needed to assure safety and accessibility in all elections.

The coalition’s statement is shared below.
