The Freedom to Vote Act, is a bill that would strengthen our democracy and improve ballot access nationwide.
Our senators have the opportunity to jumpstart the transformative democracy reforms that our country needs in order to protect against the influence of special interests and stop Republican voter suppression tactics that predominantly disenfranchise Black and brown voters.
Additionally, the Freedom to Vote Act would make voting easier and more accessible for young people. Not only would this bill allow student IDs as acceptable forms of voter identification, it would also require polling locations on college campuses.
The Freedom to Vote Act would make our government more responsive to the needs of the people and help restore faith in our democracy; however, it’s unlikely to pass the Senate unless the Democratic majority agrees to abolish the filibuster — an obsolete relic of the Jim Crow era that Mitch McConnell has abused to block most major legislation.
The filibuster must go. Our resolve to protect our right to vote is here to stay.
Call your senators and urge them to end the filibuster and pass the Freedom to Vote Act.
