Let's ensure all Americans CAN + DO vote!
Voter Suppression + Gerrymandering are threats to our democracy.
To win in 2022 we must fight for voting rights + fair maps
Fight Voter Suppression!
Protect the Right to Vote!
There is an unprecedented assault on voting rights in the wake of the 2020 elections. Over 250 bills have been filed in 43 states restricting the right to vote. These bills target mail in voting and early voting and erect new barriers such as voter IDs.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s Legal Fund is on the front lines of the battles to challenge these bills and protect our right to vote. Their geographic focus is on states with key Senate races.
Create Fair Maps!
In 2021, every state in the country will redraw their electoral maps for congressional and state legislative districts. Republicans have made it clear that they will attempt to manipulate the maps again to unfairly lock themselves into power for another decade, jeopardizing the House majority and the Biden administration’s agenda.
The National Redistricting Action Fund is the 501(c)(4) affiliate of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, which is chaired by Eric H. Holder, Jr., the 82nd Attorney General of the United States. The NRAF’s mission is to raise awareness about the harmful impact gerrymandering has on state and federal policymaking; create and encourage participation in activities that defend democratic ideals; and increase grassroots engagement in every step of the redistricting process.
The National Redistricting Action Fund has been preparing for this fight against gerrymandering for four years and has a state-by-state plan to achieve fair maps. They need our help to execute their plan and protect our democracy.

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:
Enacting strict photo ID laws that exclude common forms of ID and add time and expense to the voting process
Placing burdensome requirements on voter registration drives
Eliminating same-day voter registration
Eliminating pre-registration programs for high school students 16 and over
Invalidating voter registration forms due to trivial clerical errors
Automatically purging eligible voters from the rolls
Making cuts to voting hours during evenings and weekends, thus creating long lines at the polls
Eliminating out-of-precinct voting
Closing or moving polling places that serve minority communities and students
Attempting to block vote recounts in very tight races
