On November 3, make your voice heard and vote! America has a long history of laws to protect the right to vote for every citizen of our country.
In 1982, Congress passed an extension of the Voting Rights Act. As part of this extension, Congress required states to take steps to make voting more accessible for the elderly and people with disabilities.
There has been a lot of work done to improve voting rights, but more work needs to be done to continue showing positive momentum.
