CALL TO ACTION

Senators Young and Braun: Why do you want to keep eligible voters from voting?

 

The Voting Rights Act of 1965 secured access to the polling places where minorities and low-income citizens were being shut out of their Constitutional right to vote.  In 2013, the US Supreme Court gutted that law.  Since then, Republican-led state legislatures have imposed myriad new voter restrictions resulting in limited access by minority and low-income populations.

HR 1, For The People Act, recently passed by the US House of Representatives, is a bill aimed at expanding voter access by making registration and voting easier. The US Senate is now considering the bill.  But, Indiana Senators Braun and Young oppose this bill despite Indiana historically having one of the lowest voter turn-out rates in the nation.

Now is our chance to enact election reform legislation that will increase voter participation, end partisan gerrymandering, restrict big money from campaigning, and demand ethical behavior among politicians.
