David Schweikert Votes Against Protecting Arizonans From Harmful Voter Suppression Laws

Schweikert once again votes to block critical legislation to protect Americans’ voting rights

Today, Congressman David Schweikert joined his Washington party bosses and voted to block legislation to protect Arizonans from harmful attacks on their right to vote.

The Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act is more important than ever. As Republican state lawmakers introduce hundreds of bills to suppress voters and pass dozens of laws that limit voters’ access to the ballot box, this bill would expand Arizonans’ opportunities to vote and combat the GOP’s voter suppression crusade.

While Schweikert voted with every other extremist Republican against putting a stop to the onslaught of Jim Crow-style voter suppression laws hurting voters, House Democrats fought to protect the American people’s most sacred right.

DCCC Spokesperson Johanna Warshaw
“It’s clear David Schweikert thinks his party’s best way back to a majority is by suppressing the power of voters. If Schweikert is too afraid of his own voters, he has no business representing them in Congress.”
