The conflict has been exciting, agitating, all-absorbing, and for the time being, putting all other tumults to silence. It must do this or it does nothing. If there is no struggle there is no progress.
The voting rights movement is winning important victories across the country. Invaluable historical reforms, such as the Voting Rights Act, the 19th Amendment, and the 26th Amendment continue to ensure that many Americans are guaranteed the right to vote. Despite these protections, eligible voters continue to have their vote challenged or taken away. Our government needs to ensure that all elections have verifiable paper trails and that all polling locations are prepared for all eligible voters to cast ballots for the candidates of their choice.
