To the Editor:
Our government is meant to represent the people, to work for us. And one simple way it can do that is to pass Automatic Voter Registration (AVR).
AVR will reduce unnecessary paperwork, save taxpayer dollars in the long run, and make our elections more secure by ensuring that our voter rolls are as accurate as possible.
But the most important thing that it will do is register as many as 700,000 eligible citizens in Massachusetts who deserve to be represented by their government. Due to the existing system this may not be the case.
I’d like to encourage our legislators to support AVR. Hope you will make your voice known too.
