The fight to end poll taxes is back

Spread The Vote (STV) fights voter suppression by helping citizens of states with Voter ID laws get the IDs they need to vote.

Voter ID laws are modern poll taxes. They have the intent and effect of suppressing the vote by people of color, poor people, and young people. Spread the Vote will fight these modern poll taxes by helping voters obtain the required ID. We will accomplish this by tackling the four biggest challenges faced by poor, young, and voters of color: money, time, transportation, and bureaucracy.

Money, Time, Transportation, and Bureaucracy. 

We're launching local chapters in every voter ID state in the country so we can get voters the IDs they need every. single. day.
