Support Rep. Nikema Williams’s Voting Rights Legislation Package!

253 so far! Help us get to 500 signers!

On Monday, U.S. Rep. Nikema Williams (D-Ga.) announced a historic package of legislation that would greatly expand voting rights and improve election administration. The announcement came on the 60th anniversary of the March on Washington, a historic civil rights rally that inspired landmark voting rights legislation.  Included in the package are six bills that were reintroduced (most have counterparts in the Senate): HR 5295 The Expanding the VOTE Act, which increases resources for non-English voters, H.R. 5292 / S. 630 The Sustaining Our Democracy Act, which provides localities with grant funding to better election administration, H.R. 5290 The Voters on the Move Registration Act, which provides those who move residences with legal information and instructions for registering to vote,  H.R. 2987 / S. 1391 The Election Mail Act, which sets minimum standards for and improves U.S. Postal Services processes for mail-in voting, H.R. 5291 The People Over Long Lines Act, which provides resources to reduce waiting times for voters and sets minimum standards for wait times and H.R. 5293 The Youth Voting Rights Act, which enforces the 26th Amendment and ensures young eligible voters have adequate access to the ballot box. I support all of these bills, and as my representative I hope you will co-sponsor all of them. Everyone deserves free and fair access to the ballot. We urgently need comprehensive national standards to protect voting rights for everyone—no matter their ZIP Code, no matter their bank account. Thanks.
