Voting Rights

LIUNA supports measures that protect every American's right to vote and ensure the government's responsibility to protect this right. Voting is the very cornerstone of our democracy. Unfortunately, we are seeing hundreds of voter suppression bills filed in state houses across the country using the lie of voter fraud as a pretext to suppress one’s right to vote.

LIUNA calls on Congress to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act which would restore Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, improve and modernize the landmark law, and provide the federal government with other critical tools to combat what has become a full-fledged assault on Americans’ right to vote. We need to make it easier, not harder for people to register and vote. It is critically important that Congress take action on voting rights this year. We must protect and strengthen the integrity of our democracy.
