lyrics

Automatic universal voter registration,
Even though it fills the ruling class with trepidation,
If you say it loud enough you just might save the nation,
Automatic universal voter registration!

The right wing likes to gerrymander everywhere they can,
To guarantee their victory is what they truly plan.
But if we were signed up to vote the day we turn eighteen,
The biggest revolution that the world has ever seen!
Oh,
Automatic universal voter registration
Then declare Election Day to be a free vacation.
Then give everyone a week or three for rumination.
Automatic universal voter registration!

The number you already got, Social Security,
Could both identify you and be your guarantee.
The day you come of age you’re entered in the voting rolls,
And suddenly the country hands the power to the proles!
Oh,
Automatic universal voter registration,
Use computers and the cloud for quick verification,
Have your voting bound to you and not to some location,
Automatic universal voter registration!


[Of course, a lot of people TALK a big game about expanding the vote, but the only votes they really want expanded are the votes FOR THEM, which is why they use IDs and poll taxes and written tests to actually suppress the vote.]
[Indubitably.]

Now, Hillary suggested it, but it don't rest on her –
The right to vote for everyone is what we must ensure.
So defend the Constitution, and let's keep voting free –

[Um, excuse me?
Yes?
Does this mean letting minorities vote?
Are you an active voter?
Um, yeah.
Well, then, you’re a minority yourself, right now.
OH.
Well, in that case, I guess it’s all right then.]

Oh,
Automatic universal voter registration,
Early votes would drive FOX News insane from speculation,
Exercise your civil right, then hoist up a libation –
Automatic universal voter registration!
