We have a lot of questions for Jeff Sessions. For instance: Why did he prosecute civil rights activists who registered Black voters? Will he protect the right of all Americans to vote? Make sure your senator asks the tough questions. #AskSessions #voting #votingrights #sessions

News with Maria Boynton: We check in with Atlanta NAACP President Richard Rose at the National Convention in Baltimore. @mariaboynton #policebrutality @atlnaacp #naacp #votingrights

Some of you may have heard that they are planning on closing #FultonCounty voting precincts in majority black neighborhoods. As your #ATL city council representative, I am committed to making sure you are heard. Taking away #voting precincts in our community is another way to shut you out! Reach out to our Fulton County Commissioners before Aug. 16 and tell them what you think about this change! #votingrights #beheard

PLEASE. PLEASE. PLEASE WE. HAVE. TO. VOTE 2018 !!!@Regrann from @senatorkarlallen - So many died for this. #Selma #VotingRights #CivilRights #Justice #Alabama

My Priorities - Let People Vote The #VotingRightsAct has been under attack and I applaud Alabama’s own Congresswoman #TerriSewell and Congressman #JohnLewis for their work to restore and update the #VRA. I pledge to work tirelessly to ensure #equalrights to vote regardless of race, income or means of transportation.
Everyone is against voter fraud – but that excuse is wildly overblown and used as a ruse to deny registered voters – especially people of color - access to the polls.

Please see the "Notes" section of our Facebook page for a more in-depth look at our position on these important matters.
This is the second in a series that we'll be running for the next two weeks. #votingrights #alabama #senaterace #senate #alpolitics #dougjonesforsenate

Just trained this extremely excited and motivated bunch of 130 first time voters on their rights and responsibilities at the KKC Degree College, Lucknow. Some amazing conversations and discussions came out of this - very crucial issues discussed from corruption to gender based violence and how decision making works. And this is just the beginning for #JetSetVote with @youthkiawaaz, @facebook and PRIA.

My fellow New Yorkers! Did you know that only 9% of your neighbors voted in the 2013 primary? Elections happen every year! Need a reminder? Your neighbors certainly do!
I just took delivery of 500 of these 25-sheet super sticky post-it pads, so hit me up if you'd like to put up some reminders in your hood. I'm asking for a $1 donation for each pad to cover manufacturing costs. Hope to spread these far and wide!

Bill Hughes and his wife Anne were both falsely accused of voter fraud in 2016. Bill and Anne spoke out to change election rules so that it would be harder for others to be wrongfully accused of the same thing. Bill is now encouraging other North Carolina voters to step up and make their voices heard at electionsforus.com.

Timing is everything. Don't forget to send us your submissions for CENTENNIAL: SHE, our fall exhibition about the state of women/human/minority/LGBTQ rights since women got the right to vote in New York State 100 years ago. There is much to say about this subject, and we are looking to you artists to share your perspective. The image pictured here is a flag by artist Lola Jiblazee @lolajiblazee
Submission deadline is August 5.
Portia Munson is co-curator.

I am #pissedoff about this. Aren't you? #UScitizens #votingrights

Anne Hughes and her husband Bill were both falsely accused of voter fraud by McCrory's campaign in 2016. She was "shocked" and "fearful" having just moved to North Carolina to find out that her vote in the general election was being protested by someone she didn't even know. Help stop the fear-mongering by weighing on rules that could have helped Anne at electionforus.com.

Robert Chadwick was falsely accused of voter fraud because his father, who voted in Maryland, has the same name. He fought back by speaking directly with the N.C. Board of Elections and worked for changes to election rules. Now you can show your support for the same rule that would make what happened to Robert more difficult at electionsforus.com.
