Our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote.
So, President Obama, as you place your hand upon the bibles of both Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr., I pray that you will be inspired by the courage and conviction of these two great men who paid the ultimate price for the right to vote. I pray that you will listen carefully to the words of Lyndon B. Johnson which still echo throughout the Capitol, and be inspired by that courageous Southerner who sacrificed his political life for the sake of a greater good. I pray that you will feel the strength of Martin’s voice as he stood at the Lincoln Memorial urging our nation to make good on a 100 year old “unfulfilled promise.
Whether you voted for the first time, or waited in line for a very long time… by the way we have to fix that.
President Obama is voting early today. But If he was from these 15 states, he wouldn’t have that option and could vote on Tuesday only.
We caught POTUS flying to his fundraiser last night in Los Angeles. Watch this video to find out what he told us about how he’d increase voter participation. We hope you’ll join us in signing our petition to the President and Congress to sign the Weekend Voting Act into law.
