Why We Are Rallying for Voting Rights

https://deadlinefordemocracy.org/

July is the deadline for our democracy! If we want a functioning democracy, we must pass the S1: For the People Act for voting rights and protections, which includes:

--Increasing the number of drop-off boxes
--Requiring no-excuse absentee voting
--Establishing automatic voter registration
--Banning partisan gerrymandering and requiring independent redistricting commissions to draw congressional maps

Whatever our color, background or zip code, most of us believe that voters should pick our leaders—our leaders do not get to pick their voters. When it comes to our elections, we want a transparent process we can trust, where Americans have equal freedom to vote, whether we live in a small town or big city, the south or the north.

But today, a handful of extremist politicians have put up barriers to silence our voices based on what we look like or where we live. It’s time for national standards for voting so all of us have a say in key decisions like affordable care, quality jobs, and a healthy future.

Together, we can ensure Americans can safely and freely cast our ballots so that every voice is heard and our elections reflect the will of the people.

However, there is a political time crunch. The House of Representatives goes on the longest recess of the year at the end of July. They won’t be fully back until September 20th. It’s hard to see space for democracy reform this year after the August recess.

So every day, we get closer to a very real deadline to take action to pass
the S.1 For the People Act—a deadline for democracy!
