Cory Booker


FROM THE CANDIDATE

“For years, the right to vote for millions of Americans — disproportionately in communities of color — has been under assault. It is time for a new Voting Rights Act to finally put an end to systematic attempts to limit access to the ballot box and strip citizens of their constitutionally guaranteed right to vote. During my presidency, we will fight to protect and expand every American’s right to take part in our democracy.”

On abolishing the Electoral College: “I believe very simply that, in presidential elections, the person with the most votes should be the president of the United States. But I want to tell you, for us ever to get to a point where we can address that issue, we have got to win this next election under the rules that are there now.”

His campaign said Booker plans to propose that as president he’ll end gerrymandering; stop voter suppression efforts, such as purging voters from the rolls; expand vote-by-mail, early voting, and same-day and online voter registration; make Election Day a national holiday; rid the election system of language barriers; and give US citizens returning from incarceration the right to vote.
