Soon to take majority, Senate Democrats introduce voting reform bill
Democrats will soon take control of the Senate and plan to prioritize passing a sweeping voting rights and reform bill that the previous Republican-controlled Senate refused to consider. The bill features reforms designed to make voting easier, including allowing online voter registration and making it illegal to prevent anyone from registering to vote. It also includes campaign finance and ethics reforms and expresses support for statehood for Washington, D.C. and overturning the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United.
Young adults will be the nation’s largest voting bloc in the upcoming election and the National Voter Education Week plans to equip them with the tools and information they need to cast a ballot this fall.
A voting initiative started by several Black athletes and artists combatting systemic and racist voter suppression. This initiative aims at educating, energizing, and protecting the Black community’s right to vote.
