Message from Barbra on Protecting Voting Rights


"The new laws requiring US citizens to produce photo IDs at the poll are designed to deprive elderly and minority citizens of the precious right to cast their vote. These regressive laws are themselves the most dangerous voter fraud threatening American democracy." Barbra Streisand

I would like to direct you to two key non-partisan organizations which may be able to help you protect your own right to vote or who can direct you in how you can help protect the endangered rights of others. There is a great need for concerned activist assistance.
LAWYERS’ COMMITTEE FOR CIVIL RIGHTS UNDER LAW:
If you have questions about this matter or if you need assistance in exercising your right to vote, dial the Election Protection Hotline 1-866-OUR-VOTE (1-866-687-8683), to receive live assistance.
If you wish to volunteer for activities assisting in the urgent effort to protect our hard-won voting rights, access comprehensive voting news, rules, and regulations, and download the dynamic Election Protection Smartphone App, please visit their website http://www.866ourvote.org
