The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy -- but it's in danger. Primary voters in states like Arizona, Wisconsin, and New York are facing long lines, restrictive photo ID laws, and voter roll purges -- which hit the most vulnerable among us the hardest. With North Carolina's discriminatory voting law recently upheld by a district court judge, the time for urgent action is now.
The Voting Rights Act of 1965 was meant to protect voters from situations like this. But three years ago, the Supreme Court gutted that crucial law, saying that voters no longer had to fear discrimination at the polls.
These stories prove that we still must fight to protect the right to vote. We must restore the VRA and modernize it for the challenges voters face today.
Contact your lawmakers today and tell them to co-sponsor the Voting Rights Advancement Act!
