December Write Here! Write Now!
We will be writing Senators to ask several things, including restoring parts of the Voting Rights Act. The sunset of that Act allowed some states to disenfranchise many of their poorer and minority voters. Other actions include giving incentives to states that modernize registration to make it easy and automatic and/or enable voting outside normal working hours for those who cannot take time off during the regular voting day.
There will be a virtual briefing this Friday at 3:00pm Eastern time. Experts will discuss what can be done and prospects for action in the new Congress. If you want to attend, please register here: https://uusj.salsalabs.org/whwn1220/index.html
