Senator Boxer: Stopping Voter Intimidation

Statement

Dear Friend:

Today I called on the U.S. Department of Justice to enforce voting rights laws following new reports of widespread efforts by Tea Party-linked groups to intimidate voters and suppress the vote, particularly in low-income and minority neighborhoods. To read more, please click here.

The right to vote has been the result of a long and difficult struggle in America. It has taken generations to ensure full voting rights for minorities, women, and young people. No group can be allowed to intimidate or interfere with this fundamental right that is essential for American democracy.

Sincerely,

U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer
