It’s not implausible that if the Voting Rights Act is reinstated, we could have 30 years of Democratic presidents. The Republican Party is fully engaged in some kind cannibalist circle jerk right now, which will take years to resolve.

@senatemajldr  Now @wendyobaker  convict the impeached former president, pass a true stimulus bill, quit sitting on voting rights legislation, begin removal of Cruz and Hawley, and consider resigning yourself.

Libya, Niger and Zimbabwe pay up to recover UN voting rights#USNews 

The Biden amnesty plan goes further than previously reported: It gives immediate green cards for millions of illegal aliens, which will allow Democrats to grant them work permits, welfare benefits, and voting rights as quickly as possible.

In order to make progress on healthcare, climate, and voting rights - we must REFORM the RIGGED Senate rules that the Republican minority will use to block progressive priorities. #FixTheSenate  Sign Up to Fix the Senate:

Election Commission says, those excluded from #Assam  NRC can exercise their voting rights in assembly polls

Assam: Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora says that as per guidelines issued by Home Ministry, those people whose names were not included in #NRC  list could also exercise their voting rights.

It’s a battle to save American democracy. Biden and Dems should try to get GOP votes and isolate the “Jim Crow Caucus.” But if they can’t, they should suspend the filibuster on voting rights bills (by simple majority), as was done for judges, appointees.

Republicans will block the proposed voting-rights reforms, but at the price of underlining an authoritarian strain in their thinking. @ed_kilgore  writes

I for one don’t care whether the president or his congressional enablers put out disingenuous pablum about John Lewis. Pass and sign a voting rights bill. Name it after him. And then we can talk. Actions not empty words. Lewis always led from the front.

I have done more for WOMEN than just about any President in HISTORY! As we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of women’s voting rights, we should build a BEAUTIFUL STATUE in Washington D.C. to honor the many brave women who made this possible for our GREAT COUNTRY...

Today is the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act––one of the crowning achievements of our democracy. But once the Supreme Court weakened it, some state legislatures unleashed a flood of laws designed specifically to make voting harder, especially in communities of color.

Your reminder that Mitch McConnell has been actively blocking legislation to restore the Voting Rights Act for 244 days.

Today marks 7 years since the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act. Since then, states with a history of voter suppression have closed 1,688 polling places throughout the South. It couldn't be more blatant:

As Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans praise the legacy of John Lewis, remember that they’ve been actively blocking voting rights legislation for 237 days.

So let me get this straight: Legislation to restore the Voting Rights Act has been sitting on McConnell’s desk for months — and he will directly benefit from his state allocating just one polling place for 616,000 predominantly Black voters? Can this be any more blatant?

The Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act seven years ago today. Mitch McConnell is currently blocking legislation to restore it. This shouldn’t be a partisan issue.

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.

BREAKING: All 49 Senate Democrats are now opposed to the Thomas Farr nomination. With Senator Flake opposed, we need one more Republican to defeat this nominee. RT to urge Republicans to vote NO to defeat this anti-voting rights nominee.
