Democratic Senators: Carve Out The Filibuster for Voting Rights Now!

278 so far! Help us get to 500 signers!

In red and swing states, Republicans are ramming through new, highly partisan voting restrictions clearly aimed at preventing Democrats—particularly voters of color—from casting ballots. They are also enacting laws that will make it easier for Republican office holders and officials to overturn election outcomes so that their candidates can take office regardless of the popular will. The Senate must pass new voting rights legislation immediately!  It is now clear that not a single Senate Republican will support voting rights legislation of any sort, and that they will use the filibuster to prevent the Democratic majority from passing new voter protection laws. While I support filibuster reform ideas such as “talking filibuster” and “41 votes to sustain” they will not be enough to enact a voting rights bill, because restricting Democratic voters is the essential element necessary for Republicans to regain and retain power in a nation where the majority oppose their anti-democratic, pro-fossil fuel, pro-Wall Street agenda. As my senator, I want you to carve out a filibuster exemption for voting rights bills. Period. The stakes are immeasurably high. Please do the right thing. Thanks.
