 Public Policy





As several state legislatures claim it is the “perception” of voter fraud that justifies their pursuit of voter ID laws, the New York Times looked to the League to set things straight, and explain that many of those politicians are the ones creating the perception problem.


Please read President Carson's remarks on voter suppression and the November 8th election.


Read our letter to Congressman Mark Takano urging continued efforts to restore full powers to the Voting Rights Act and demand a formal investigation of Interstate Crosscheck - a program that could be illegally removing thousands of voters from state voter rolls.
