Call or write your state representative to sponsor and support House Bill 4469. House Bill 4469 calls on jail facilities across the state to have a plan for people detained pre-trial (and thus still eligible) to have access to the ballot, to exercise their right to vote. The bill also calls for eligible individuals leaving prisons and jails throughout the state to receive a voter registration form and information about their voting rights.
