The right to vote, and to have one’s vote accurately and fairly counted, is a fundamental right of all American citizens — and one that underpins the rest of our civil liberties.
Nevertheless, the fight to protect voting rights and free and fair elections remains as critical as ever. From rules that intentionally suppress participation, to outdated and insecure machines that jeopardize the integrity of elections, to laws that disenfranchise people with criminal records — America’s voting systems remain seriously flawed. Threats to suffrage continue to grow, disproportionately affecting low-income people and people of color.
At the The ACLU of Delaware, we believe that all who wish to vote should be able to do so. That’s why we pushes back against attacks on voting rights and advocate for reforms and improved technologies — such as new voting machines, early voting, and automatic and same day voter registration — to improve access to the ballot.
