Restoring The Voting Rights Act

Voting is often touted as the pillar of American democracy. It’s a right that was hard-won for most Americans, and had to be defended and secured during the civil rights movement. That battle led to the passing of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, but it was far from the last fight to make voting more accessible.
