Protect Our Right to Vote

Last Friday, a federal judge in North Carolina upheld a dangerous and discriminatory voter suppression law.

This law restricts the right to vote by making it more difficult for younger, poorer, minority, and disabled voters to cast their ballots.

This attack on voting rights is not unique to North Carolina.

Radical politicians from all across the country are trying to rig elections in their favor by reducing the turnout of people who may not support their extreme agenda.

These discriminatory voter ID laws weaken the voice and power of working people in America. It is time for us to band together and fight back.

That’s why UFCW has joined together with a powerful group of organizations from all across the country to demand that our politicians protect voting rights.

Any law that suppresses a person’s right to vote is wrong. We cannot sit idly by and watch as millions of people are silenced and denied their right to vote. We can’t win this fight alone; add your name and demand that politicians do their jobs and protect our vote.
