Will you be able to vote this November?
This year, we will hold the first presidential election in 50 years without the full protection of the Voting Rights Act. Not coincidentally, as noted in the map above, 17 states will have new restrictions on voting in effect that were not in place during the last presidential election. Collectively, these states contain over 114 million people and have 189 votes in the Electoral College – about 70 percent of the votes needed to be elected president. Congress can take action now to strengthen voter protections that have been weakened by the Supreme Court to ensure that every American vote counts this November.
