Focus on the Issues

Although the Voting Rights Act and the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) have reduced barriers to registration and voting for many Americans, too many obstacles remain in the way of full civic participation. Some barriers are in statute and rule, others are practical or procedural; some are intentional efforts to curb voter power, while many are the result of poorly-designed bureaucratic systems, insufficient resources, or inefficient practices. All fall hardest on communities that have traditionally been underrepresented in the American electorate: low-income people, minorities, immigrants, and youth.

The pages to the right provide summaries of the issues, along with links to Project Vote research and policy briefs on important election administration topics, explanations of Project Vote's efforts to address identified problems, and links to additional resources.
