  •  I want to see a system (5+ / 0-)

    that reminds people by text and email of upcoming elections, early voting, voter id requirements and a list of recommended progressive candidates for their ballot.

    This list should only be used for elections info (not fundraising) so that people don't opt out during the year.

    The only reason I voted yesterday is because I received so many robo calls that I realized there was something to vote on in my area.  My next problem -- all the races were non-partisan which meant it took me a good 2 hours to track down endorsements from Democratic organizations and even longer to figure out why these races even mattered to me in my day to day life.

    Next issue -- there's probably going to be a runoff for a few seats.  When and where?  Beats me and even as involved as I am, there's a good chance I'll miss that election.

    All these issues would go away and make me an almost 100% certain vote in EVERY election if I at least had a reminder of elections and special elections and some guidance on who is the best candidate and why.
