As McConnell and Congressional Republicans take to Twitter to commemorate Dr. King on #MLKDay , they're actively blocking bills that would enact automatic voter registration, make Election Day a holiday, and protect the Voting Rights Act. There is no limit to the GOP's hypocrisy.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: this is just a poll tax by another name. As President, I will fight to restore the Voting Rights Act and stop this and other attempts at voter suppression.

King said: "Give us the ballot." Last month, You voted against the Voting Rights Advancement Act.

NY pol channels MLK with voting rights act to fight suppression The measure being proposed would establish a "right of action" if members of a protected class have less opportunity than others to vote.

We're still fighting to restore the Voting Rights Act, to mend our broken criminal justice system, to eliminate systemic injustice that still threatens economic progress, health outcomes, and opportunities - all visions in Dr. King's dream. #MartinLutherKingJrDay 

More than 50 years after passage of the Voting Rights Act, Americans still face discriminatory voting practices at the polls. We must come together and finally #RestoreTheVote  for all.

Klobuchar says voting rights would be first thing on her agenda, including restoring aspects of the Voting Rights Act dismantled by the Shelby County decision. #WeThePeople2020 

@AnthemRespect  @HLAurora63D  @scrowderems  want to give voting rights to felons bc they believe freedom comes w/o responsibility. Generally, felons have lower understanding of responsibility, consequences, rule of law, morality, are prone to act impulsive, lower IQ than avg population. Sound familiar?

This modern-day poll tax is an affront on our democracy and goes against the will of Floridians who voted to restore voting rights for formerly incarcerated citizens. It’s a reminder of why we must pass the Democracy Restoration Act.

Once passed by the House, the Senate must quickly take up the Voting Rights Advancement Act. Denying the American people a vote on H.R. 4 would be denying millions of Americans their voting rights. #RestoreTheVote

I was beaten, left bloody & unconscious while friends of mine gave their lives to ensure that every person has the right to register & vote. But five years ago the SCOTUS Shelby County v Holder decision stuck a dagger in the heart of the Voting Rights Act. We must #RestoreTheVRA 

53 years ago today, the Voting Rights Act was signed into law by President Johnson. I shed a little blood on that bridge in Selma and friends of mine gave their lives so that no person would be denied their right to vote. Now do your part—get registered, and vote. #goodtrouble

House Democrats have already outlined a bill that would: 1) Overturn Citizens United. 2) Establish Automatic Voter Registration. 3) Bolster anti-bribery laws. 4) Protect the Voting Rights Act. Meanwhile, Trump is trying to stop a recount & handing out medals to megadonors.

Mitch McConnell calls #HR1  a "power grab" because it would: 1) Begin to overturn Citizens United. 2) Establish Automatic Voter Registration. 3) Bolster anti-bribery laws. 4) Protect the Voting Rights Act. Yes. It's a "power grab" -- grabbing power back for the people.

Yesterday I asked Kavanaugh whether or not he believed Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act — which prohibits state and local voting laws that discriminate on the basis of race or color— was constitutional. He refused to answer.

Good morning. Florida Republicans write laws to deny the right to vote to 20% of African-Americans. They gerrymander districts to disenfrachnce Democrats. Their Congressmen in DC fight against the Voting Rights Act. FYI there’s only one party cheating in Florida.

House Democrats say their first bill after taking power would establish automatic voter registration and reinvigorate the Voting Rights Act.

Today's reason to call your senators and urge them to #Stop Kavanaugh: Kavanaugh would help kill the Voting Rights Act and uphold voter suppression laws that make it harder for voters of color to cast ballots.
