How the Administration is Fighting Against Attacks on Americans' Constitutional Right to Vote

BRIEFING ROOM

FACT SHEET: How the Biden-Harris Administration is Fighting Against Attacks on Americans’ Constitutional Right to Vote

JUNE 11, 2021

STATEMENTS AND RELEASES

As the President said when recognizing the tragic injustice of the Tulsa race massacre, the “sacred right [to vote] is under assault with an incredible intensity,” in a manner that is “simply un-American” but sadly, not unprecedented. And he called for a redoubling of efforts to expand voting rights and overcome the surge in efforts to undermine the right to vote of so many Americans through anti-voter laws that are motivated by a dangerous lie – a lie that motivated the unprecedented assault on our Capitol on January 6th, that cost the lives of brave law enforcement officers, and that has been disproven by over 80 federal judges appointed by Presidents of both parties and bipartisan election official across the country.

Plain and simple, these voter suppression laws are meant to attack Americans’ constitutional rights — especially people of color — and that is absolutely unacceptable to the President. He ran to restore the soul of America, and to address the four principal crises facing our nation – one of which is racial justice.
