From Congressman John Lewis, Georgia's 5th District

This is deeply personal for me.

Iíve been marching and preaching and fighting for voting rights for over 50 years. Today, weíre seeing a deliberate and systematic effort on the part of Republican officials to prevent minorities, seniors, the young, and the poor from casting their ballots.

Republican Governors like Floridaís Rick Scott and Wisconsinís Scott Walker are trying to steal this election even before it takes place.

Will you stand with me and donate $5 or more to the DCCCís Voter Protection Fund?

Voting is precious, almost sacred. Itís the most powerful instrument that we have in a democratic society. We need to move quickly to launch voter education programs and counter the powerful interests that are endangering our basic rights.

Too many courageous people have fought to secure the vote. Donít let it be taken away:

Thank you,

John Lewis
