"Voting is not a privilege, it is a right which must not be infringed."

"We have recently been reminded that progress is never guaranteed and that the right to vote is only as safe as the political will to protect it."

"We must all remain vigilant and focused in light of the Supreme Court’s decision and hold the leadership in the House accountable to update the law. Sitting on the sidelines, waiting for something to happen is not an option."

"Democrats will – as we have for over 50 years – continue to ensure that we protect the franchise. It’s who we are as a party, as a people, and as a nation. And we will never back down; We will never give up; and We shall not be moved!"
