Legislature Passes Voting Rights Bills

One of our long-term priorities has been voting rights, and I received the following message from Speaker Chopp:

I am happy to let you know that the House and Senate have finally passed the Washington Voting Rights Act (SB 6002), same-day voter registration (SB 6021/2297) and automatic voter registration (SB 6353/HB 2595). This package of bills will help strengthen the voices of underrepresented voters and increase access to democracy. I have supported these critical pieces of legislation for several years now, and appreciate your strong support of increasing voter access in Washington state.

Thank you for your advocacy.

Sincerely,

Frank Chopp

Speaker of the House

43rd Legislative District | Olympia Office: (360) 786-7920
