Together, through our votes, we take control over what happens to our families and communities.
But voting rights across the country are under attack – join with fellow voters and pledge to honor and protect our constitutional right to vote.
Recently, the U.S. Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act, erasing fundamental protections against racial discrimination in voting that have been effective for more than 40 years. Until Congress acts to restore the critical protections provided by this crucial legislation, the rights of some of the most vulnerable and underrepresented groups of voters are at stake.
Voting brings us together as Americans – it is the one time when we are all equal. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor, young or old, liberal or conservative; elections are our opportunity to have a say in America’s future. A lot is at stake in every election – by voting, we’re taking control and impacting the issues and policies that will be debated and affect our daily lives.
It is critical that we ensure every American can cast a vote and have it counted. Our democracy’s future is on the line – pledge to protect voting rights.
Rooted in the movement that secured the right to vote for women, the League of Women Voters has always been committed to registering and turning out voters, and we’re not stopping now. We protect and defend voting rights across the country in order to ensure that our elections are fair, free and accessible to all eligible citizens. We’ve helped defeat laws that restrict voters’ rights, block such laws where they have already passed, and fight laws designed to curb organizations like ours from registering voters.
Ultimately elections are about voters like you. Join us in protecting voting rights and safeguarding this right for all Americans.
Thank you for Making Democracy Work®!
Senior Director of Elections, League of Women Voters
