The 2020 Election is Just Months Away
We need Congress to take action now, before time runs out.
No American should have to choose between their health and their vote.
But that is the choice that countless primary voters in Wisconsin, Georgia and Kentucky had to make this year. These voters, particularly voters of color, faced countless barriers to casting their ballots — including absentee ballots never being received, polling place closures, five-hour long lines and broken voting machines.
This is unacceptable.
The Senate must adopt the voting reforms and $3.6 billion in funding included in the House-passed HEROES Act to protect our nation’s election and democracy. State and local elected officials will need adequate time to implement these reforms. The clock is ticking.
