Stand against partisan attempts to disenfranchise voters

Q: In Shelby County v. Holder, the US Supreme Court invalidated provisions of the Voting Rights Act, which has led to disenfranchised voters across the US. If elected, what will you do to ensure that the voting rights of all Americans are protected?

KATIE MCGINTY: Voting is a fundamental right for Americans across this country. We must fully restore the Voting Rights Act to protect that right for thousands of Americans who are being disenfranchised. But we must also do more. As Senator, I will stand against partisan attempts to disenfranchise voters through new voter identification laws because we should be encouraging more people to vote, not systematically denying them that right. I also support reforms that increase accessibility and integrity in our elections like guaranteeing early voting and expanding options for voter registration.

Make it easier for people to participate in our elections

Katie McGinty believes that we need to make it easier for people to participate in our elections, not harder. She opposes Tom Corbett's Voter ID legislation because it creates unnecessary obstacles for seniors, minorities, and low income voters from exercizing their right to vote. As Governor, Katie will oppose any legislation that inhibits a person's ability to exercise their constitutional rights.
