Araujo supports motor voter laws that register everyone automatically when they go to the DMV even if they are not a citizen. The DMV currently has no way to split off those with a green card from citizens in their computer system. Araujo wrote this in a recent op-ed: “Just over six months into his first term, President Trump has repeatedly made false allegations of voter fraud; ordered his Justice Department to take steps to sue states that do not arbitrarily and illegitimately remove voters from voting rolls; and, created a dubious “electoral commission” whose only intent is to establish national voter suppression laws. President Trump even went so far as to order the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division to withdraw its opposition to a Texas election law that a federal judge found was written with “the intent to discriminate against protected voters,” the exact type of voter suppression laws that both the Voting Rights Act and the Civil Rights Division were created to stop. Furthermore, in the 2018 November election, Nevadans will be able to vote for a common sense ballot initiative, that will update and modernize our voter registration process – a process that will help replace our outdated paper-based system, reducing human error and strengthening oversight. This updated system will automatically register eligible voters or update voter registration information, when eligible voters apply for or renew their driver’s license. Nevadans agree that we should have a voting system that protects the fundamental right of every eligible voter – Democrat, Republican, Non-Partisan or otherwise – to have their vote counted. It is this core belief that binds Nevadans together and it is this fundamental right that we must continue to fight for and protect.” Araujo is currently the Senior Director of Collective Impact and Diversity, United Way of Southern Nevada.
