Help LWVUS Tell Congress to restore the Voting Rights Act!

It's time for Congress to take action to protect voters. Click here to send a message to your representatives in Washington and tell them to end voting discrimination in this country.
Three years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court gutted key provisions of the Voting Rights Act (VRA). Since then, states and localities have used every tool available to make voting harder. Without Congressional action to repair the VRA, 2016 will mark the first presidential election in 50 years without its full protections.
