Demand a roll call vote on the Freedom to Vote Act.

Call Senator Schumer either in DC(202-224-6542) or Albany(518-431-4070 or New York City(212-486-4430 or all 3 and suggest when calling for a vote on the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Amendment demand that it be a roll call vote. US Senators will then be on record as being against Voting Rights.

Joe, Kamala et al should call out Manchin, Sinema, and Republican senators like Romney, Collins, and any of them who make any claim to moderation, by name with the question, “who do you stand for, Bull Conner or John Lewis, democracy, or autocracy? How do you want history to remember you?”

They need to put it on record that the question was asked. That way, in the future if its even possible to look at the true history of these times, it will be clear that at least Democrats tried. And that there are specific villains to blame.

(I called. Thx for the numbers.)

It will be a floor vote. My calls, letters, and emails have always stressed - John Lewis Voting Rights Act.

That's the one where we can really say 'gotcha'.

We need those Nay votes on screen/recorded for the election.
