LEGAL ACTIONS TO

FIGHT SUPPRESSION

 

With voter suppression the top Republican strategy to win in November the work of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s Legal Fund fights back against State election laws that make it harder to register or vote.
Their geographic focus is on states with key Senate races. Historically the Legal Fund had been used in post-election processes, such as election recounts, contests, and FEC complaints. Today, the Legal Fund is proactively used to challenge unnecessary restrictions on voting rights prior to the election.

RAPID RESPONSE TO LOCAL ELECTION EMERGENCIES

 

The Movement Voter Project has created a PAC to provide rapid response support for grassroots organizing in critical cities and states facing election emergencies.

 

These groups may be called on to document election interference, uncounted ballots and voter intimidation; track mail in ballots; draw media attention to irregularities and quickly implement messaging and narrative strategies. 

This fund is administered by Movement Voter PAC, a federal political committee. Donations are not anonymous or
tax-deductible.

 

This is what Voter Suppression Looks Like

In dozens of states, GOP-controlled lawmakers have passed a cut-and-paste menu of voting laws that selectively disadvantage the working poor, minorities, naturalized citizens, and young people. These include:

1.

Enacting strict photo ID laws that exclude common forms of ID and add time and expense to the voting process

2.

Placing burdensome requirements on voter registration drives

3.

Eliminating same-day voter registration

4.

Eliminating pre-registration programs for high school students 16 and over

5.

Invalidating voter registration forms due to trivial clerical errors

6.

Automatically purging eligible voters from the rolls

7.

Making cuts to voting hours during evenings and weekends, thus creating long lines at the polls

8.

Eliminating out-of-precinct voting

9.

Closing or moving polling places that serve minority communities and students

10.

Attempting to block vote recounts in very tight races
