If you believe that every American citizen has the right to vote, than support the reauthorization of the Voting Rights Act (VRA)! This legislation was critical in preventing states with histories of discrimination from passing laws that suppress the vote of particular groups, primarily people of color. Within the states judged to have the worst cases of disenfranchisement, black voter registration nearly doubled after the VRA. The Supreme Court gutted a key provision of the law in 2013, rendering the VRA ineffective. It’s time to reauthorize the VRA!
