Virtual Event Virtual Event

On Tuesday, May 2nd, at 12:00pm ET, Sylvester Johnson III, National Volunteer Manager and Voter ID Coalition Coordinator at VoteRiders is coming back for another Tent Talk. He will provide results from the 2022 elections, discuss which voter ID states they will be focusing on in 2023, the disenfranchisement of youth voters that is happening across many states, and what we can do to help. The renowned Jessica Craven will be moderating the discussion!

Jessica Craven is a full time activist, community organizer, political TikTok creator, and elected member of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party’s Central Committee. She’s also the author of “Chop Wood, Carry Water,” a daily actions e-mail.

ABOUT VOTERIDERS: 

VoteRiders is a nonpartisan voter protection organization which helps voters navigate the Voter ID law requirements in various states across the country. We will learn about their work and begin sending letters making sure eligible voters have the ID and information they need to cast a ballot that counts. VoteRiders’ mission is to ensure that no eligible voter is prevented from casting a ballot that counts due to voter ID laws, either directly from lack of acceptable ID or indirectly because of voter confusion. VoteRiders educates voters and assists citizens to secure their voter ID. We inspire and support organizations, volunteers, and communities to sustain such voter ID education and assistance efforts.

BARRIERS TO THE BALLOT:

Tens of millions of voters find that obtaining an ID that fulfills voting requirements is costly and confusing. It often requires navigating arcane systems and bureaucratic barriers that cost time and money. All to exercise a basic freedom that should be equally accessible to all Americans.

We also see massive confusion about voter ID rules in EVERY STATE – among voters and poll workers alike. State laws are complicated to understand and often changing. Confusion can easily lead to disenfranchisement for too many Americans unless we take action.
