Hillary Clinton has one of the best platforms to protect voting rights that I have seen

The Clinton platform is one of the best set of proposals to protect the right to vote that I have seen and this is one of my passions. https://www.hillaryclinton.com/issues/voting-rights/



Hillary has laid out her vision for how to expand access to the ballot box for all Americans and how to defend against the systematic, deliberate efforts to stop millions of citizens from participating in our democracy:

Repairing the Voting Rights Act. Congress should move quickly to pass legislation that would fix the damage done to the Voting Rights Act by the Supreme Court and restore the full protections American voters need and deserve. These protections are crucial for young and minority voters, seniors, and other underrepresented groups disproportionately affected by harmful Republican efforts to restrict voting.

Setting a new national standard for early voting
. Itís time to set a standard across our country of at least 20 days of early in-person voting, including opportunities for evening and weekend voting. This will reduce long lines and give more people an opportunity to vote, especially those who have work or family obligations during the day. Early in-person voting isnít just convenientóitís also more secure, more reliable, and more affordable than absentee voting.

Implementing universal, automatic voter registration. Every citizen in every state should be automatically registered to vote when they turn 18, unless they choose to opt out. At the same time, we need to make sure that registration rolls are secure, up to date, and accurate. When you move, your registration should move with you. Modernizing registration will add tens of millions of voters to the rolls, cost less, and reduce the potential for errors or irregularities.

1. WOW. Powerful ad! I got goosebumps! I love to hear Rep. John Lewis actually SPEAK as a young civil

rights warrior.

California has already passed a law that all persons who turn 18 will be registered to vote. This has to be done all across the nation. And we need to allow more voting days. Hillary proposes 20 and I'm for it! The antiquated Tuesday-only voting day makes it too easy for Republican governors and legislatures to play their voter-suppression games. With 20 extra days, that will pretty much end that.

6. I have signed copies of both March 1 and March 2

I got to meet Congressman Lewis a while back. He is just as impressive in person as he is on TV.

4. Clinton unveiled these proposals back in May at Texas Southern University

I was too busy to attend but watched the speech on line and I was very impressed.
