Add your name as a citizen co-sponsor of the Right to Vote Amendment today:
A war on democracy is raging across the country.
Since 2010, 21 states have added new voting restrictions. These include “photo ID” laws that disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of student, minority, and elderly voters. They also include attacks on early voting, and laws making it harder to register to vote.
The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy, but most Americans would be surprised to find out there is no affirmative right to vote in the U.S. Constitution.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act. We have come far, but our work is not finished. Now is the time once and for all to end voter suppression.
Congressmen Mark Pocan and Keith Ellison have introduced a constitutional amendment that reads simply:
"Every citizen of the United States, who is of legal voting age, shall have the fundamental right to vote in any public election held in the jurisdiction in which the citizen resides."
