LWVUS Supports HR1, the For the People Act

HR1 – the For the People Act aims to expand voter registration, to remove barriers to voting especially for vulnerable populations (including expanding early voting), and to establish fair redistricting rules to curb gerrymandering. National Public Radio characterizes HR1 as an anti-corruption bill because the bill defines solutions for problems in voting, money in politics, redistricting and ethics.

On January 4, 2019 LWVUS CEO Virginia Kase announced support for HR1 – the For the People Act. On January 16, 2019 the LWVUS President Chris Carson contacted Congressional representatives emphasizing the key provisions in the act that protect each citizen’s right to vote and curb voter suppression.
