Voting Rights

Protecting Our Rights

We need to do everything we can to protect and expand 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.

The House has acted to renew the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, and the Senate must immediately support this bill. Jim has cosponsored multiple bills to address and protect voting rights, and will continue doing everything he can to get a remedy passed into law as quickly as possible so every American will have an equal opportunity to vote.
