U.S. Rep Barber's Statement on Today's Supreme Court Ruling on the Voting Rights Act

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Ron Barber issued the following statement on today's decision by the U.S. Supreme Court declaring part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act unconstitutional:

This morning, the Supreme Court ruled to eliminate key protections to ensure the vote of every citizen is protected. Any erosion of the right to vote is wrong, and undermines the core values of our democracy.

I will continue to work to ensure that all those who are eligible to vote are able to do so, and will fight any attempt to use today's U.S. Supreme Court ruling as an opening to infringe on these hard-won rights. The right of every American citizen to fully take part in the political process must be protected.
