Making sure that every American’s voice is heard
Our sacred and fundamental right to vote remains under attack. Republican state legislatures around the country continue to pass partisan laws that make it harder for Americans to access the ballot box by limiting popular practices such as early voting and voting by mail, and taking over who administers elections. It is our responsibility in Congress to enshrine voter protections by ensuring every American can voice their opinion and that elected officials respect that decision.
In the House, we have already passed two historic voting rights bills. The Senate has also proposed its own legislation. These critical bills will help uphold free and fair elections, end partisan gerrymandering, establish Election Day as a national holiday, restore and reauthorize the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and more.
Later this year, Americans will head to the polls. There is no time for the Senate to waste in advancing these bills and protecting one of our most fundamental rights as citizens. As President Biden said this week in Atlanta, “At consequential moments in history, they present a choice: Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace? Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis?”
I know where I stand. I hope the Senate will make the right choice as well.
