The Freedom to Vote Act improves access to the ballot for Americans, advances commonsense election integrity policies, and protects our democracy from emerging threats. Importantly, this proposal reflects feedback from state and local election officials to ensure that the people responsible for implementing these reforms are able to do so effectively. This bill also elevates the voices of American voters by ending partisan gerrymandering and rooting out the undue influence of special interest money in our politics.
This comprehensive pro-democracy package can be broken down into three parts; voter access and election administration, election integrity, and civic participation and empowerment.
Coming together, we have the power to demand that our Senators exercise their majority and pass the Freedom to Vote Act and John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to create national standards that protect our rights, ensure that trusted local election officials count every vote, and prevent partisan politicians from sabotaging the results of our elections.
VOTER ACCESS & ELECTION ADMINISTRATION
CIVIC PARTICIPATION & EMPOWERMENT
Whatever our race, background or zip code, in America we value our freedom. The freedom to have a say in decisions that impact our lives — from curbing the pandemic to creating jobs to making health care affordable. But now, the same faction who have endangered our lives with lies about COVID and our election, passed hundreds of anti-voter bills in states, and tried to block an investigation into the attack on our Capitol are refusing to pass laws the majority of Americans favor. This is a turning point for our nation.
Our Senate leaders must exercise their majority, eliminate the filibuster, and pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act to create national standards to ensure that we can safely and freely cast our ballots, ensure that trusted local election officials count every vote, and prevent partisan politicians from sabotaging the results of our elections.
