30 June 2020 – Carl Reiner – writer, director, entertainer, social activist, beloved family member and friend passed away today; he is mourned by many in the entertainment world and by many for his wise words on our government.
One of his most recent projects was a video which also features One Pulse for America’s George Takei, Rita Moreno and a host of stars: all wanting Congress to release funds to help people vote by post.
We have a serious pandemic on our hands; we have an election looming. No one who is isolating for their health should be robbed of their right to vote; no one should be forced to physically go to a polling station and risk their health – their lives in fact – and potentially the lives of others.
It’s the 21st Century: the least we can do is mobilize a postal vote. This will take funds – and Congress can do this.
Unfortunately Mitch McConnell seems unwilling to protect the health of Americans with this intelligent, compassionate postal vote roll-out.

Watch the video here: and then contact your Congressional Representatives and Mitch McConnell through one of the channels below and give them the following message, personalized to your liking:
I want every American to be able to vote without risking their lives in these days of the Covid-19 pandemic.
I support Defending Democracy Together and agree with them when they say “Congress must help states prepare for this unprecedented election and give states the resources they need to ensure the election is safe and secure. Americans—especially the most vulnerable among us—should not have to choose between their right to vote and their health.”
I want funds released now to fund postal voting – McConnell must do the right thing and release funds to ensure everyone can vote.
-OR- send this tweet: @McConnellPress We have a pandemic; you have a responsibility to make sure every eligible American gets to cast their vote: free up funds to roll out more postal voting NOW. No one should lose their vote; no one should risk their life to vote https://www.defendingdemocracytogether.org/voting-options/
