Damage to VRA must be repaired

Posted: Friday, August 23, 2013 3:00 am

Aug 26 marks the 93rd anniversary of the constitutional amendment that granted women the right to vote.

Now is a critical time to do all we can for voters. Earlier this summer, a key part of the Voting Rights Act, known as Section 4, was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The damage to the VRA can and must be fixed – Congress has the power to act swiftly to restore the effectiveness of the Voting Rights Act. The League of Women Voters needs your help in calling on Congress to repair and restore the VRA. You can help by contacting your congressman and/or U.S. senator.
