We will only succeed - with ANY of our goals -
if the people with power in Washington change.

WE MUST make sure that WE
will be able to vote for candidates who will NOT suppress the vote.

WE MUST make sure that WE will be able to vote for candidates who will NOT suppress the vote.
And we do know that one party is suppressing the vote and one party's operatives have been repeatedly arrested and convicted of voter fraud. And this party is the R...............
We need to contact our representatives to impliment and enforce anti-voter suppression laws.
Find your House member & Senator & write & call them:

Dear ............................:

{ Y.O.U.R...I.N.T.R.O...H.E.R.E }

We have seen many states do everything possible to restrict the voting rights of American citizens. They cannot win elections with ideas, so they use manipulation.

providing inadequate numbers of voting machines
purging voting rolls
restricting voting hours
voter ID requirements
cutting early voting

Just like the civil rights movement, we must solve this at the FEDERAL level with NATIONAL laws that will void the anti-citizen anti-voting state laws.

These existing federal laws may prove useful ( slightly editted ):

Title 18 US Code - Section 241: Conspiracy against rights

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.

Title 18 US Code - Section 242: Deprivation of rights under color of law

Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.


I see this issue as an opportunity to show our district and your coinstituents the kind of courageouss leadership - for democracy - and for America - that you can provide.

I look forward to voting for you again !

I think it should be mandatory for all people to vote and if they don't they should be fined.
