Our focus is on reforms intended to strengthen democracy in Washington State and nationally, that include campaign finance reform, public funding of elections, ranked choice voting, reversing Citizens United, expanding voting access, and increasing civic participation.
WON (Women in Office Now), another project of Fix Democracy First Education Fund, is a statewide program that consists of several training modules to help enable women to successfully run for office in Washington state.
WON, in collaboration with other organizations, is also working to build a statewide leadership support network to help women as they run for office.
This would update our online voter registration to allow people to register with their Social Security Number and a submitted signature, expanding access to people without Washington driver’s licenses.
The improved system would automatically register voters who provide a document proving their US citizenship during visits to DMV. They will then receive a notice by mail giving them the opportunity to opt out.
