TODAY: DNC Voting Rights Commission to Hold Press Call

Today, September 12, 1:00 PM EDT, the Commission to Protect American Democracy from the Trump Administration will hold a press conference call to address how the Trump administration’s voter fraud commission is working to suppress the fundamental democratic rights of Americans and to lay out the steps that Democrats are taking to fight back. 

This press conference call will take place ahead of the second meeting of Trump’s Kris Kobach-led commission.

The DNC launched their voting rights commission this May in order to combat the Trump administration’s voter fraud misinformation campaign by debunking the myth of widespread voter fraud, demonstrating the difficulty of voting in areas affected by voter suppression, and highlighting and promoting best practices that make voting easier.  The commission was created in response to the real threat to democracy posed by the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.

Jason Kander, President of Let America Vote and former Missouri Secretary of State, chairs the commission with Congresswoman Terri Sewell (D-AL) serving as vice-chair. Members of Congress and state and local elected officials have also joined the commission to offer their diverse experience on ways to protect voting rights and increase voter turnout.

WHO: Tom Perez, DNC Chair

Jason Kander (Chair), President of Let America Vote

Rep. Terri Sewell (Vice Chair), Alabama

Alex Padilla, California Secretary of State
