To the Editor:
Dear Sens. Durbin and Duckworth and Rep. Shimkus — please support HR 2978 / S1419 - Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2017. Every eligible voter in every state should have an equal and fair opportunity to vote. It is a fundamental right sacred to our democracy, and yet some states get away with disenfranchising their voters. Please put an end to this discrimination!
Now more than ever, with white supremacists actively attacking our democracy, we need to ensure that all U.S. citizens are guaranteed their voting rights. Controlling who votes is how white supremacists control a nation. Opposing Nazis means protecting the vote.
