Protecting Our Rights
We need to do everything we can to protect our voting rights. In Shelby v. Holder, the Supreme Court struck down a key component of the Voting Rights Act: the formula that compelled specific states with a history of voting discrimination to approve their electoral changes and requirements with the federal government.
Congress must now draft a new formula to revive the Voting Rights Act. I have cosponsored multiple bills to address this issue, and will continue doing everything I can to get a remedy passed into law as quickly as possible so every American will have an equal opportunity to vote.
