Tell Your Congressperson: Support the Open Our Democracy Act
U.S. Congressman John Delaney (D-MD) recently reintroduced the Open Our Democracy Act. The new bill (HR 2981) requires states to establish independent commissions for congressional redistricting; makes Election Day a holiday; and institutes open top-two primaries for House and Senate elections, allowing all voters to participate in primaries.
Closed partisan primaries exclude millions of independent voters and contribute to the toxic partisanship in Washington and every state capital. The time has come to significantly reform our primary system so that the voters, not the parties, have the power. The Open Our Democracy Act is an important piece of legislation and deserves our support!
Please send a letter to your Congressperson urging he/she to cosponsor the bill.
