We believe that all political questions: domestic, foreign, economic, social, environmental - depend on a functioning and fair voting system. When that system is flawed, the voice of the people is not fully heard.
Building on the hard-won voting rights victories of the past, Every Vote Counts seeks to strengthen our democracy for future generations by making sure that every American who is eligible to vote can easily do so – and that every vote counts.
The most basic right of all was the right to choose your own leaders. The history of this country, in large measure, is the history of the expansion of that right to all our people.
PRESIDENT LYNDON JOHNSON
