Why Is Your Right to Vote Important?
The right to vote gives us the power to hold our elected leaders accountable — to remove those who don’t represent our values and replace them with leaders who will fight for our vision for the future.
Sometimes leaders who don’t share our values get scared of this power, and they try to take away our right to vote. They create barriers, like poll taxes and restrictive identification requirements, to try to silence our resistance. But each time they do so, Americans have marched, fought, and even died to protect our rights.
This fight is far from over. We’re here to help simplify what’s going on, but we need your help defeating bad policies that threaten our freedoms, and fighting for policies that protect everyone’s right to vote.
