Testimony Regarding The State of the Right to Vote After the 2012 Election

December 19, 2012

This testimony concerning the state of voting rights reads, in part, 'It should not be an endurance sport to vote in our country, yet tens of thousands of Americans from every political stripe faced lines up to 6 hours long because of inadequate planning, unfair rules and restricted access to the ballot box. Voter suppression became a catch-all name for the many restrictive voting laws and policies underlying the 2012 election cycle.'

January 29, 2018; Press Release, Status Update

Today, Common Cause joined an ideologically diverse group of governors, members of Congress, local government leaders, and others in filing amicus briefs urging the Supreme Court to put an end to partisan gerrymandering. On March 28, the Court will hear arguments in Benisek v. Lamone, a First Amendment challenge to Maryland’s Sixth Congressional District, which Democrats drew after the 2010 census in a successful attempt to defeat a longtime Republican incumbent. If the Supreme Court rules in favor of the plaintiffs, it could result in a nationwide prohibition against the manipulation of legislative boundaries for political advantage.
