    It's very important that the voting rights act be amended so that it can reestablish it's function in protecting the rights of minority voters.

    I would like to challenge Republicans to stop blocking people's ability to vote. I challenge Republicans to join with Democrats in securing our election process; to apportion districts fairly instead of Gerrymandering; To treat voting a duty of every citizen to include automatic registration and mandatory voting. Republicans, if you can't win elections fairly then maybe you should rethink your platform.
