The fundamental right of every eligible voter to cast their ballot and every resident to have their voice heard as a member of society are cornerstones of our democracy. How we deploy resources, make real the social norms and standards across every community, shape our daily lives through policy, and move forward the shared values of this country are all based on these foundational principles.
As a nation, we can ensure elections are free of barriers for all eligible voters. This requires the federal government, in partnership with states, to provide dedicated resources to guarantee that all communities — especially those systematically left behind — are included.
