LETTER TO THE EDITOR: For The People Act makes elections more fair & accessible

Columbia, SC 07/30/3031 (Dr. Lady June Cole) - The For The People Act, also known as HR1 and S1, will improve our democracy by making our election system more free, fair, and accessible to all Americans. This legislation will restore the Voting Rights Act, provide automatic voter registration and same day registration, eliminate dark money in our elections, end gerrymandering, and restore transparency in our government. The League of Women Voters of the Columbia Area joins with organizations and businesses around the country in our enthusiastic support of the For The People Act.


The United States House of Representatives passed the For The People Act in early March. The League of Women Voters of the Columbia Area now calls upon our senators to support this transformative bill. Senator Lindsey Graham and Senator Tim Scott must show their dedication to the freedom to vote. They must vote in favor of For The People Act.

The legislation enshrines into law what all Americans know: that everyone deserves an equal voice in our democracy. The For The People Act is a huge step forward for democracy, one that the League of Women Voters, strongly supports.
