CONGRESSWOMAN SUSAN DAVIS INTRODUCES LEGISLATION TO END ABSENTEE BALLOT RESTRICTIONS

 

 
June 16, 2011 (Washington) – Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego) introduced legislation, the Universal Right to Vote by Mail Act (H.R. 2084), that would end restrictions many states impose on a person’s ability to vote by absentee ballot. 
 
Currently, 21 states restrict an eligible voter’s ability to vote by mail, also known as absentee.  The other states offer no-excuse absentee voting. Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego) re-introduced her bill to end such restrictions and allow all eligible voters nationwide to vote by mail for any reason in federal elections.
