Stop Republicans From Suppressing Voter Turnout
A coordinated Republican effort to suppress the Democratic vote and skew the outcome of the 2012 elections is under way.
More than 5 million voters could be affected in states including Ohio, Florida, Wisconsin, Nevada, Virginia and California – more votes than decided the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections. No surprise, the legislation heavily targets young, poor and African American voters – who disproportionately support Democrats.
We need 150,000 people to join our 2012 Election Protection Project and stand against these undemocratic tactics. Republicans need to know that we’re onto them, we’re fighting back, and we WILL NOT allow them to manipulate their way to victory in the 2012 elections.
I strongly oppose Republican attempts to suppress the Democratic vote and manipulate their way to victory in the 2012 elections. Preventing voters from doing their civic duty is just plain wrong, and I stand united with Democrats against coordinated Republican schemes to do so.
