Among the many states currently awaiting approval by the DOJ are: New Hampshire, Virginia, Alabama, Texas, Wisconsin and South Carolina. But all Americans should speak out and stop this discrimination.
Dear Attorney General Holder,
The 1965 Voting Rights Act is legislation in which America can be truly proud. However, in the past two years it has come under assault by politicians who seem to care more about winning at any cost, than about fairness and dignity.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, along with countless other Americans, gave their lives for the freedoms so many enjoy today and one of the most important initiatives they fought for was the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
Today, we have States that are seeking to change the election process to such a degree that discrimination is inevitable. The proponents of these changes have managed to get Voter I.D. Laws changed at the state level, and now it is up to you Sir, to decide whether to allow this injustice to continue or to do what is fair and just, and deny approval.
Please don't let the rights that so many Americans fought and died for to be for nothing. Don't approve any changes to the election process that may disenfranchise any American voter. Stop these useless Voter I.D. laws!
