Today’s Action: Stop voter suppression laws at the state level!

Following in Georgia’s footsteps, where Republicans have signed into law the most repressive and racist voter suppression policies in more than half a century, the GOP has introduced similar laws in nearly every state in the nation. And they’re using Trump’s baseless lies about voter fraud to justify them, without a shred of evidence.

In Congress, we’re working to pass the For the People Act, which would overturn these laws. But if that effort fails, our next round of elections may include more roadblocks to voting than we’ve seen in decades…and rest assured those roadblocks will impact Democrats far more than Republicans.

So, it’s time to double our efforts, by targeting voter suppression at the state level in addition to the federal level.

Check to see whether your state is considering voter suppression laws. Then, call or email your state representatives and tell them to preserve democracy in your state – no racist voter suppression laws based on Trump’s baseless voter fraud lies! 

Republicans have introduced over 360 voting bills in 47 states. And every one of them will make it harder for citizens to vote. For perspective, this time last year, only 35 laws of this kind were being considered. It’s a nationwide Republican sabotage.

This is an emergency, and if we don’t address it with the urgency it deserves, we’ll be facing a very different government by the next election cycle.

Every future election – and all of the values we hold dear – depend on stopping this coordinated attack on voting rights by the GOP. Check your state’s status on new voter suppression laws and then email or call your state reps to demand they protect the right to vote.

If you’ve got an extra minute, also call your Senators and demand they pass the For the People Act!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition calling on advertisers to boycott news outlets that promoted racist birther conspiracies against Kamala Harris, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
