Voting Rights

Following the 2014 Supreme Court decision to overturn a key section of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, at least 20 states have introduced unnecessarily restrictive voter registration requirements, ID laws, and early voting. These restrictions affect roughly 21 million U.S. Americans, the majority of whom are elderly, low-income, or people of color. Voter rights are also denied the  6.1 million Americans with a felony record. One in 13 African Americans is disenfranchised, compared to one in 56 non-black voters.
