Sign now to Senate Democrats: Abolish the filibuster and pass voting rights legislation now
We have a narrow window of time to make the changes that the majority of people want and deserve before the upcoming midterm elections.
As right-wing, racist election conspiracies spread, it’s clear that the GOP will keep trying to secure power at the expense of our democracy, our rights, and our lives.
Unless we pass the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.
These federal voting rights policies would set national standards for elections administration that would override states’ wave of voter suppression bills, and make voting easier for everyone. For example, the Freedom to Vote Act would make Election Day a holiday, guarantee access to early and mail voting, enable automatic and same-day voter registration, and prevent partisan gerrymandering.
But it’s clear these policies won’t pass if the filibuster is in place. Republican Senators have already blocked voting rights legislation four times this year—using the filibuster, which requires a supermajority of 60 votes in order to even bring legislation to the floor for debate or a vote.
The filibuster protects the unjust status quo and enables a small minority to keep impeding the will of the American people. To make the progress that the majority of Americans want and deserve, we must abolish the filibuster.
Please sign now to tell Senate Democrats: It’s time to end the filibuster and guarantee our right to vote.
