We Vote. We Count.

You have the power to shed light on unfair and discriminatory voting practices. #WeVoteWeCount

It’s time for the United States to adopt sound policies that include full voter protection at the polls. Fight for change.

Make It Count

Voting interference doesn’t just affect us at the polls—it affects our neighborhoods, families, and way of life. Both the 2020 Presidential Election AND the 2020 U.S. Census report provide an opportunity for voters to let their voices be heard, and their families are counted. Crucial decisions are made based on data from the U.S. Census report —including how schools, fire departments, and other public services in our communities are funded, and how we’re represented in the United States Congress. Communities of color have historically been underrepresented in the voting booth and in U.S. Census, with devastating consequences. In 2020, let’s make our vote count at the polls—AND in the U.S. Census.

Field Hearings: Voting Rights and Election Administration

The Subcommittee on Elections of the Committee on House Administration will hold field hearings on Voting Rights and Election Administration. Come and share your personal experiences of voting rights. More event details to come.

People's Hearings

Community meetings are being held in select communities across the country to give a voice to those who have experienced voting rights interference.
