Tell Congress: Restore the Voting Rights Act!

Just a quick reminder:  TODAY (Wednesday, July 17th at 11:00 am MST) is the Senate’s critical first hearing on proposals to restore the Voting Rights Act after the right-wing Supreme Court gutted its key components.  You can watch the hearing here live when it happens.

DLCClogoBefore tomorrow’s hearing, it’s absolutely critical that we speak out and urge Congress to restore the Voting Rights Act NOW!  Please add your name by 11:00 am MST Wednesday to maximize your voice in support of voting rights.

Right-wing state legislators will exploit any opportunity to make it harder for eligible citizens to vote, because they know that by restricting access to the polls, they’ll make it harder for Americans to hold them accountable for their extreme agenda on issues like women’s health care.

This is the Republican strategy everywhere in America – including New Mexico – and we’re counting on you to demand action so the worst abuses can be stopped. If you can’t watch tomorrow’s hearing live, please show that you support restoring the Voting Rights Act by signing our petition before 1:00 pm Wednesday.

Thank you for taking a stand,

Kurt Fritts
National Political Director
