Access to Democracy

We pledge our service for the betterment of the society. We envision a  society were their is inclusiveness socially, politically and democratically. We are doing our part. As we are approaching a vital period of our democracy, the Collegiate Congress is putting all its effort for an inclusiveness in the democratic process. So it's now time that we move together and get 'Access to Democracy'. Voter participation in the United States is consistently one of the lowest in the world. Even turnout in the much-hyped presidential primary elections hover around 50% of eligible voters, and have for the last 100 years.   
    While there are many explanations, one has become abundantly clear: the limited access working people have to the voting booth. Every election New Yorkers that would otherwise participate in their democracy are instead barred from it, not (explicitly) by gender or race, but by circumstance. It doesn’t need to be this way. Join with the Collegiate Congress, [other supporters] and demand a solution in time for the 2018 election. Whether a city-wide voter holiday or the ‘early elections’ model used in other states, together we can make New York City a beacon for democracy, and a more exemplary model for other municipalities to follow suit.
