Freedom To Vote Act Details
"Democrats’ have been seeking to establish federal protections for elections since the violent events on Jan. 6. As Senator Kaine put it at today’s press conference, Jan. 6, 2021 “was an effort to disenfranchise 80 million people…The only response to an instance of massive disenfranchisement of that kind is to guarantee that people’s franchises are respected, and that’s what this bill does.”
Democrats also pointed to the efforts to restrict access to the ballot box that have swept the country this year with at least 11 states passing legislation that suppresses the vote, according to research by the Brennan Center for Justice.
Sewell, one of the bill’s primary sponsors, closed out the press conference, by saying, “Across this nation, MAGA extremists are working to restrict voter access to undermine faith in our elections and to dilute the power of the black vote. We saw it in 2013 when the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act and unleashed a wave of voting restrictions all across this nation. We saw it in 2020 when the former president spread false claims of voter fraud in an attempt to overturn a free and fair election. And we saw it last week when Republicans passed their national voter suppression bill on the House side through the House and Administration Committee.” - Democracy Docket
