Voting Rights and Democracy
The right to vote, essential to a well-functioning democracy, is the most enshrined right in the Constitution and is protected by five separate Amendments. CAC works to extend this fundamental right to all Americans and push back against attacks that attempt to limit the people’s access to the ballot box.

Holder, conservative state legislatures and, most recently, the Trump administration, have passed various restrictions aimed at abridging the right to vote. Discover how CAC is defending our democracy and the people’s access to the ballot box against these attacks.
