STOP Republican voter suppression (sign this!)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

URGENT RESPONSE NEEDED: Sign your name to STOP Republican voter suppression →

Republicans in Congress just introduced a bill that would require government-issued ID to vote.

If this passes, MILLIONS of low-income or minority Americans will lose their right to vote. NO!!!

Sign our petition to STOP Republican voter suppression:

Friends, what’s happening is flat-out UNDEMOCRATIC:

Republicans are relentlessly trying to pass bills to stop Democrats from voting.

In 2017 alone, state legislatures introduced a WHOPPING 87 bills that aim to restrict access to the ballot box.[1] And now Republicans in Congress just proposed a bill that would categorically target and disenfranchise low-income and minority voters.

Are you kidding?! Voting should -- AND MUST -- be open and available to all Americans, regardless of race or socioeconomic status.

If you believe the right to vote belongs to EVERY American, please sign our petition right away:

Voter ID laws like this one are proven to REDUCE voter turnout in elections by 2-3 points, or tens of thousands of votes.[2]

That difference could determine the outcome of an election!!

We can’t let Republicans continue trying to steal our elections by suppressing primarily Democratic voters.

That’s why we’re calling on citizens like YOU to stand up and defend one of our most basic and fundamental rights.

Sign your name today to demand Republicans STOP their discriminatory voter suppression efforts:
