How Can We Protect Voting Rights?
Faulkner Gallery, central Library, 40 East Anapamu, , Santa Barbara
Cosponsors: League of Women Voters Santa Barbara, SB library, SBTV
Today, voting rights are under attack like never before. The gutting of the landmark Voting Rights Act by the Supreme Court in the Shelby v. Holder case has opened the floodgates of voter suppression laws in state after state. The Trump administration’s new ‘Election Integrity Commission,” created to justify false claims of voter fraud in the 2016 elections is laying the groundwork for even more dangerous voter suppression across the country. For nearly one hundred years, the women and men of the League of Women Voters have worked every day to help make democracy work for everyone. The League actively opposes voter ID laws, which unfairly impact low-income, elderly, and minority groups. The League also advocates against barriers to the voter registration process, works to prevent last-minute Election Day barriers and helps millions of voters get the information they need to vote
