FairVote's Leadership on Right to Vote

NEW: FairVote policy brief on right to vote amendment

May and June have been big months for FairVote's work advancing a right to vote in the Constitution. In Congress, representatives Mark Pocan and Keith Ellison introduced bill for a right to vote amendment along lines that we have recommended, featuring quotes from FairVote in their news release.

Locally, our hometown of Takoma Park (MD) became the first to pass a resolution in support of a constitutional right to vote and is making concrete commitments to expand suffrage and boost turnout. One significant change: Takoma Park will become the first city in the United States to extend voting rights to residents after they turn 16.
