Subject: It's Time for the Senate to Pass S1
On behalf of the League of Women Voters I am writing to ask you to support the For the People Act
of 2021. The For the People Act
(S1) addresses some of the most pressing issues facing our democracy. S1 will fundamentally restore our democratic system by renewing the Voting Rights Act
, modernizing our voter registration system, establishing criteria and transparency to limit partisan gerrymandering, and making campaign contributions transparent.
The For the People Act
is the democracy reform bill the American people want and deserve. This legislation will put power back into the hands of American voters by removing barriers to voting, restoring the ballot to formerly incarcerated individuals, and modernizing future elections. It will also help voters understand who is trying to influence their vote by shining a light on big money donors.
As an organization dedicated to empowering voters and defending democracy, the League of Women Voters is one of the original supporters of the For the People Act
. It's time to put power back in the hands of the American people. This year, we must unequivocally support passing the For the People Act
. As your constituent, I urge you to support S1.
