We’re facing an emergency situation. Politicians across the country are trying to silence millions of people by robbing them of their right to vote. And they’re targeting specific groups of voters: people of color, the poor, people with disabilities, and students.
The November elections are fast approaching and vulnerable voters could lose their voice in this democracy if we don’t act now. Stand with the ACLU by pledging to take an active role in the fight for every citizen’s right to vote.
Many politicians, motivated solely by partisan politics, are blocking access to the ballot by requiring forms of identification that are difficult or costly to acquire. And they're cutting back early- and late-night voting hours, widely used by minority and low-income groups.
Pledge to fight back against these assaults before the critical November elections.
The ACLU's Protect the Vote Team, made up of people like you, is taking action. We’re urging Congress to pass new legislation to protect the right to vote, educating the public with our "Know Your Voting Rights" resources, and spreading the word about efforts to block access to the ballot.
The ACLU has had some big victories in court and in state legislatures in the battle to protect voting rights, but we’ve got to keep fighting until access to the polls is easy and fair for all citizens. And we need your help.
Act now. Pledge to stand with the ACLU’s Protect the Vote Team and help make sure every eligible voter can cast a ballot.
There is nothing more critical to our democracy than the right to vote—and it’s under attack. Countless Americans, primarily people of color, the poor, people with disabilities, and students, are being disfranchised. I won’t allow this to happen.
I pledge to support the critical work of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Protect the Vote Team to ensure that every eligible voter can fully participate in our democratic process.
