Voting Rights Act

Congress must act quickly to restore voter protections lost last year when the Supreme Court gutted key sections of the Voting Rights Act.

The new Voting Rights Act, introduced with bipartisan support, will strengthen voting rights in every state. It allows us to better track efforts to obstruct voting and gives us tools to stop them.

Email your representatives today. Tell them to co-sponsor and support the new Voting Rights Act.

Major companies including Coca-Cola and Blue Cross Blue Shield have severed their ties to ALEC and its agenda. Help keep the pressure on - sign the petition calling on ALEC's corporate sponsors to join the exodus.
