After a surge of voter interest and participation in 2008, a wave of anti-democratic voter suppression laws — designed to disenfranchise huge numbers of voters who are African-American, elderly, students or have disabilities — threatens to keep up to 5 million eligible voters from casting a ballot in 2012.
Take action today to stop these outrageous attempts to deny people their right to vote. Sign the petition urging Attorney General Holder to protect the right to vote.
Thank you for taking action,
Anthony D. Romero
Executive Director, ACLU
P.S. In the past 12 months, the ACLU has been involved in 28 voting rights lawsuits in 18 states, and has lobbied against voter suppression measures in over 20 states. We’ll keep protecting people’s right to vote all across America, but we need your help. Please sign our petition today.
