Senate Democrats

Tele-Town Hall to Protect Voting Rights

On Monday, October 1 at 2:30 p.m. ET, please join Senator Dick Durbin (D-Illinois), Assistant Majority Leader and Chairman of the Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights, and Senator Mark Begich (D-Alaska), Chairman of the Senate Democratic Steering and Outreach Committee, for a Tele-Town Hall to discuss the ongoing effort to protect voting rights.

From purging voter rolls and cutting early voting periods to enacting burdensome and unwarranted voter registration and identification requirements, a disturbing trend of voter suppression efforts in locales all across this country threatens our fundamental right to vote. Access to the polling booth should be above partisan politics and disruption by outside groups. We must work to ensure that this right is vigorously defended.
