NEW MEMO: DNC’s Unprecedented Efforts to Protect the Vote
January 21, 2022
Today, the DNC released a new memo highlighting its work to combat voter suppression. While efforts to pass federal legislation continue, the DNC has already made unprecedented and continuing investments to ensure fair and equal elections, built its largest voter protection team ever, and done it all earlier than ever before, with additional efforts to combat Republican election subversion still to come.
“Across the country, Republican lawmakers are working to dismantle our democracy and undo the decades of progress leaders like John Lewis and Martin Luther King Jr. have built. We won’t stand on the sidelines and we won’t let them get away with it,” said DNC Chair Jaime Harrison. “The DNC will fight state by state, county by county, and voter by voter to make sure every eligible person gets to exercise their sacred right to vote. The stakes are too high to wait. Over the coming months, our work will only expand as we take on Republicans and fight to save our democracy.”
Protecting the right to vote is a central mission of the Democratic Party. The DNC, with the support of President Biden and Vice President Harris, will continue to do everything we can to fight back against Republican attacks. Republicans are leading an all-out assault on our right to vote, with 34 anti-voter laws passed in 19 states just last year. They’re gaslighting the American people — standing in the way of progress by repeatedly blocking federal voting rights legislation, while at the same trying to convince Americans that voter suppression does not exist.
