Voting is more than a civic duty — it's a vital part of a democratic society. Voting laws or practices that thwart an individual's ability to vote weaken our democracy. Assaults on the right to vote are increasing across the country and are likely to threaten Minnesota. The ACLU of Minnesota works to protect your right to vote. We do this by protecting the victories made since the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which helped protect the political participation of racial and language minorities in our national dialogue.
We must resist any attempts to restrict voter registration, early voting, same-day registration, and access to the polls.
