Voting Rights

Alex believes that our democracy is strongest when every citizen votes. That’s why he’s spent his career fighting to expand and protect voting rights for all eligible citizens. As California’s Secretary of State, Alex implemented automatic and same-day voter registration, expanded vote-by-mail, and launched early vote centers. These key reforms led to record voter registration and participation in California and have become a model for the rest of the nation. In the U.S. Senate, Alex is a champion for stronger voting rights and increased funding to modernize and secure our elections. He wants to preserve and protect the free and fair elections that are the foundation of American democracy.
