Protecting the Right to Vote

All around the country, elected officials are trying to change the rules for who can vote, who counts the votes, and who gets to declare the winner. This can't happen on our watch. It's time to pass federal legislation to protect our right to vote and protect free and fair elections. Tell your Senator: Pass the Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act (H.R. 5746) and don’t let outdated procedures stand in the way.
