On the April 23rd edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about policies that could get more people to cast ballots. In the 2014 midterm US elections, we saw the worst voter turnout in 72 years. Oregon is tackling this problem by becoming the first state in the country to automatically register voters who go to the DMV. California is considering a similar law. What are other states doing to make voting easier? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
