Voting brings us together as Americans. But almost a half-century after Congress passed the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the right to vote is uncertain and the machinery of our elections is rickety.
In Washington, our state capitols, and in thousands of voting precincts from coast-to-coast, Common Cause is fighting to ensure that every adult American has easy access to the ballot and that every vote is counted as cast.
Together, we can:
- Strengthen laws to protect voting rights
- Make voting systems secure, reliable and verifiable
- Stop scams and intimidation campaigns that drive people away from the polls
- Ensure that every voter has an equal say in presidential elections
- End partisan redistricting, so voters choose our representatives rather than the other way around
