Today Senators Barack Obama and Chuck Schumer introduced the "Deceptive Practices and Voter Intimidation Prevention Act of 2007." Please see the attached link for more information about this critically important step toward ridding the country of practices that threaten the integrity of our election system.
The counsel and experience of the Lawyers' Committee's National Campaign for Fair Elections and the Election Protection Coalition were invaluable in demonstrating the compelling need for this important bill and for shaping the most effective response to this challenge.
Thank you for your continued support for our efforts to lead the way in ensuring that every American voter has equal access to the ballot box and to have that vote counted. Please don't hesitate to contact me should you care to learn more about this initiative, the National Campaign's work plan for 2007-2008, or any of our ongoing efforts to strengthen our election system.
