Faced with voter roll purges, closed polling places, and restrictive voter-ID laws throughout the country, hundreds of organizations are teaming up again to protect access to the ballot box.
Every four years, Americans come together to select their president. And, every four years, there are massive voting problems throughout the country. We see instances of unreasonably long lines at the polls, confusing information, malfunctioning voting machines, and voters finding out that their name was one of the hundreds of thousands purged from the voter rolls. Even without Russian attempts to disrupt voter registration databases, presidential elections are often chaotic.
More than 200 organizations and 100 law firms have joined forces in an effort to keep the confusion to a minimum and combat the efforts of those who want to prevent some people from voting.
