The 2016 primary season is exposing a crisis of democracy in America.
The prevalence of voter suppression, from voters forced to stand in line for five hours in Arizona to over one hundred thousand voters purged from the rolls in New York, is inexcusable.
Meanwhile in North Carolina, a federal judge has upheld new voting restrictions, including a voter ID law that will disproportionately block poor and minority voters from the polls.
It’s no secret that reducing voter turnout benefits the political establishment.
It’s time to bring real democracy to America by eliminating unfair barriers to voting and ensuring every vote counts.
Voter suppression across the United States has reached crisis levels, largely because the Constitution does not explicitly guarantee our right to vote. An explicit Constitutional right to vote would empower Americans to challenge systemic voter suppression and restore the integrity of our elections.
Stand with Jill Stein’s call for an explicit Constitutional right to vote today!
