The coalition also believes that Pennsylvania’s election system should be updated to ensure that all of its citizens–particularly seniors, veterans, voters with disabilities and working people–have an equal opportunity to make their voices heard. To start somewhere concrete, the coalition is highlighting four important updates that have been successful in giving voters more choice about when and how to vote in states across the country: Optional Vote by Mail (AKA no-excuse absentee voting), Youth Pre-Registration, Early Voting, Same-Day Voter Registration.
