To live in a true democracy where all voices are heard and represented, we must secure voting rights for everyone — no matter what. Because voter-suppression is on the rise in many places, it’s more important than ever to know your rights. If you see intimidation at the polls or any other issues while voting, call the Election Protection hotline: 1-866-OUR-VOTE.
