As we celebrate America’s independence, we’re reminded that the right to vote in enshrined repeatedly in our Constitution. Throughout history, some of our greatest strides have come when this right was reaffirmed and expanded. When voting obstacles are knocked down, our country grows freer, fairer, and more just.
So, it’s troubling that forces are again working to make it harder for Americans to exercise their right. While the right to vote shouldn’t be “use it or lose it,” the best way to fight voter suppression is to register, vote in elections and be sure your voice counts in our democracy.
