YOU X ME = ELECTION INTEGRITY

Our three pronged strategy 
for making every vote count.

In order to win in November,
we need to be sure that ALL Americans CAN
+ DO VOTE.


To that end, Force Multiplier is supporting 3 groups that
organize voters
+ protect voters + litigate voter suppression tactics.

 

You have a choice of where to invest.

LEGAL ACTIONS TO

FIGHT SUPPRESSION

 

With voter suppression the top Republican strategy to win in November the work of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s Legal Fund fights back against State election laws that make it harder to register or vote.
Their geographic focus is on states with key Senate races. Historically the Legal Fund had been used in post-election processes, such as election recounts, contests, and FEC complaints. Today, the Legal Fund is proactively used to challenge unnecessary restrictions on voting rights prior to the election.

Check out this great selfie video from Black Leaders Organizing Community (BLOC), one of the voter empowerment groups that FM supports through the Movement Voter Fund. Before the pandemic BLOC was knocking on doors, registering voters and organizing in Milwaukee's Northside. They have had to pivot their energies and their dollars to ramp up on technology and do more expensive voter outreach.

LIT is a Milwaukee based  group led by youth of color engaged  in building independent political power for social, racial and economic  justice. 

 

This is what Voter Suppression Looks Like

In dozens of states, GOP-controlled lawmakers have passed a cut-and-paste menu of voting laws that selectively disadvantage the working poor, minorities, naturalized citizens, and young people. These include:

1.

Enacting strict photo ID laws that exclude common forms of ID and add time and expense to the voting process

2.

Placing burdensome requirements on voter registration drives

3.

Eliminating same-day voter registration

4.

Eliminating pre-registration programs for high school students 16 and over

5.

Invalidating voter registration forms due to trivial clerical errors

6.

Automatically purging eligible voters from the rolls

7.

Making cuts to voting hours during evenings and weekends, thus creating long lines at the polls

8.

Eliminating out-of-precinct voting

9.

Closing or moving polling places that serve minority communities and students

10.

Attempting to block vote recounts in very tight races
