Call for the Federal Government to Protect Voting Rights

A variety of factors unique to this election cycle contribute to a voting environment where voters have reason to believe they will be met with intimidation at the polls, accompanied by a very real fear of violence due to the color of their skin or their age.

We urge you to investigate possible violations of federal voting rights laws and intervene where necessary to protect voter rights. A major party candidate is calling for voter intimidation at the polls based on race and age. The threat of voters being met with possible violence from white supremacists and law enforcement at the polls could lead to substantial voter suppression on Election Day. Due to the far-reaching nature of the call for voter intimidation of people of color and young voters, it is necessary for the federal government to take action in order to protect voters.
