League of Women Voters: Your Vote Does Count Forum

Other parts of the VRA are still in place, but the remaining processes for a citizen to file a discrimination claim about voting are more complex, costly and lengthy. LWV is strongly supporting a new writing of Section 4, to be passed by Congress and signed by the President this fall. It’s a fundamental right in this country to have fair, accessible elections for all Americans - young and old, rich and poor, urban and rural - in all states, counties and municipalities. The LWV’s vision is to expand access to voting and to increase the number of citizens voting.
