Since before the founding of the United States until the 1920s, non-citizens were able to vote in 40 states. Currently in some cities in California, Maryland, and Vermont, non-citizens are allowed to participate in local elections and there have been movements to extend this right more broadly elsewhere as well.
Trabajadores Unidos invites you to join our Civic Education and Voting Rights campaign, with the purpose of educating and guaranteeing the participation of immigrants, day laborers, and low-wage workers in the democratic system of the District of Columbia. With the passage of the Local Resident Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2022, non-citizens who are DC residents will be able to vote in local elections in 2024.
