With so much at stake in November on the local, state and national levels, it is deeply troubling that such a fundamental part of the democratic process, the right to cast one’s vote and to have that vote counted, is increasingly in question. But we can make a difference and take action to strengthen our democratic process. Now more than ever, it is critical for justice advocates to help work for fair elections and insure that the rights of all voters are protected at the polls.
By participating in the nonpartisan Election Protection campaign in the days leading up to the elections and on Election Day, you can help to make it possible for the voices of the voters to be heard and counted. Visit the Election Protection website for tools and resources to help insure fair elections.
On March 1, 2016, 12 states and one territory will hold presidential primaries or caucuses as part of Super Tuesday. The UCC has partnered with Election Protection to make sure that every voice is heard during this election season.
