Reps. Abigail Spanberger and Elaine Luria and House Democrats took decisive action today and passed historic legislation to protect Americans from Republicans’ harmful attacks on their right to vote.
Democrats’ 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 Americans’ opportunities to vote and combat voter suppression tactics.
While every single House Republican who voted today voted against putting a stop to the onslaught of voter suppression laws hurting American voters, Spanberger and Luria fought to protect the American people’s most sacred right.

“Abigail Spanberger and Elaine Luria have proven yet again that while Republicans try to suppress the power of voters, they are fighting each day to protect the right to vote for every single Virginian.”
