Voting Rights and the 2020 Election

Voting Rights

Democracy depends on ensuring that every voter has an equal and fair opportunity to cast a ballot, free from restrictions that have a discriminatory impact. There is, perhaps, no more fundamental right in a democracy than the vote.

ADL supports and promotes nonpartisan efforts to encourage voting and make it more accessible for all U.S. citizens, so that everyone is able to take part in this critical aspect of our democracy. This is especially important at this time, as we work to overcome obstacles that could negatively impact voter turnout.
